About PwC Legal

Your career is just that; yours. You choose it. You live it. You make it happen. To get the most from it, you need the best opportunities. That’s why opportunities are at the heart of a career with us.

PwC Legal is a member of the PwC international network of firms.

Our offer to you

PwC Legal is an exciting place to launch your legal career. With more than 2,500 lawyers in over 85 countries, we have one of the most extensive legal services network in the world. What’s more, although we’re independent, our services are embedded within the powerful, multi-disciplinary capabilities and broad geographic footprint of a global professional services leader. Our links to PwC mean we can offer our clients rounded solutions incorporating multi-disciplinary advice. And as PwC has over 17,000 employees in the UK, we can give you an unrivalled, ready-made network on your first day at the firm. Yet we’re not so large in the UK as to be impersonal. You’ll feel respected and encouraged to be the best you can be – thanks to the quality of our legal training plus daily exposure to the highest standards of work and broad business skills.

What you’ll do

You’ll be training in a stimulating, multifaceted environment and learning from exceptional people. You’ll quickly gain practical, hands-on experience and lateral thinking skills as part of teams generating creative ways to tackle complex problems. The practice groups you could work in include Mergers & Acquisitions, Banking, Commercial Litigation, Commercial Fraud, Corporate Structuring, Employment, Immigration, Intellectual Property & Information Technology, Pensions, Real Estate and Tax Litigation. You may also complete a seat in Dubai.

What you need to bring us:

We generally recruit two years in advance for trainee solicitors and therefore focus on penultimate year law students and final year non-law students. We can sometimes be flexible however and occasionally make offers commencing sooner than this.

  • You’ll need to be on track for a 2:1 or above in any degree subject
  • A UCAS tariff of at least 320 (or equivalent)
  • A keen interest in business law

Please note: PwC Legal principally recruits Trainees through our Summer Vacation Schemes. The next available scheme is the Summer Vacation 2015. All successful applicants from the 2015 scheme will be offered a Training Contract to join in 2016 or more usually 2017.

We know that the skills and experiences you develop with us will stay with you throughout your legal career. So join us – we’ll help you reach your full potential.

Take the opportunity of a lifetime.
