Our client-facing legal practice is an exciting place to launch your legal career. With some 3,700 plus business lawyers across more than 100 countries, we have one of the most extensive legal services networks in the world. Because of the way our business is structured, we’re able to provide our clients with rounded solutions, incorporating multidisciplinary advice from our wider business areas. Working with us is not just about legal advice. It’s about seeing beyond uncertainty and risk to uncover new opportunities. It’s about harnessing the power of PwC’s global reach, local presence and industry depth to chart a future-ready path to success. It’s a unique training environment.
You’ll rotate across two different practice groups, carry out research, draft legal documents and attend client meetings.
Our Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture.

If you’re working towards a professional qualification you’ll have time off to study, and once you’ve finished the training contract, we’ll carry on helping you develop your career with us. All routes offer you the opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life. In return we need people who are resilient, willing to work hard, quick to learn, and who, above all, are passionate about going the extra mile to help our clients.
Our two-week paid Summer Vacation Scheme is a great way to find out how we work and see for yourself the ways in which we’re truly unique in the legal marketplace, gaining valuable legal work experience during your time with us. You’ll get a highly-competitive wage while you’re here.

The scheme is our principal route towards securing a training contract with us.
