Jones Day Graduate Recruitment

 Jones Day is a truly global law firm. Our 2,500 lawyers across 43 major business and finance centres worldwide address the most demanding and complex global matters. As leaders in cross-border M&A and global disputes, we look for exceptional individuals who want to work on global deals, be challenged on an international level, and can become partners of the future, not just train with us. In London, our graduate trainees work on truly global transactions, thrive on early responsibility, and develop as lawyers fast. We recruit to retain. Half our London partners trained with the Firm.

You don’t need a background in law. Over half our trainees are non-law graduates and many have postgraduate degrees in disciplines other than law. In our unique training system, trainees assume their own workload and work across different practice areas simultaneously. Because they do not move department every six months, they don’t miss the end of deals or trials they have worked on.

Our work placement schemes are the route to training at Jones Day. Operating like mini training contracts, you gain a real insight into life as a trainee at our global law firm. They are open to all final year students, graduates and postgraduates of any discipline, as well as penultimate year students of a qualifying law degree.

At Jones Day, diversity is not only enthusiastically endorsed, but diligently pursued. Diversity makes us better and helps us deliver the service our clients expect. By mentoring and promoting women, people of colour, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and those who are disabled, we leverage the unique strength and experiences of an exceptionally talented group of lawyers, while enhancing the atmosphere of our Firm.
