What we are looking for
There is no such thing as a typical White & Case trainee. We recruit people from all walks of life, from different national and cultural backgrounds, and with widely varying personalities.
Even so, there are a few special qualities we always look for.
Intelligence and academic excellence are essential. Your interest in us suggests you have the ambition, drive and determination to become a high-flying global lawyer.
Next, the way you think is crucial. You’ll enjoy the intellectual challenge of analysing how the law works and being creative, yet commercial, in how you interpret it. Your clients will come to depend
on your lateral thinking, your focus on detail and your ability to resolve complex issues or structure international transactions.
You’re a team player, on who colleagues can rely to perform tasks accurately, efficiently and on time. Integrity is vital too. Not only to maintain your clients' and colleagues’ trust, but to uphold our reputation. In other words, your professional standards have to be beyond question. You'll also not be afraid of hard work, as you'll be working for a leading global law firm where the client always comes first.
You’re expected to ask questions about your work or seek feedback on your performance – that’s why we have an ‘open door’ policy. You’ll work in small, focused teams, and never be short of information about matters you’re working on or how you’re doing.
Your strength of character is probably reflected in your interests and activities outside the office. And of course, everyone appreciates a good sense of humour! If you’re up for the challenge, then this is the place to be.
