About us

CMS Cameron McKenna forms part of a leading group of firms known as CMS. At CMS, we have 52 offices across 28 countries, with the most extensive footprint in Europe of any other firm.

We advise on a wide range of transactions and issues, and have the expertise to understand clients' needs and concerns, no matter what field they operate in. We don't coast by on our good name though. We're far more proactive than that. To ensure we continue to deliver an outstanding level of service, we've launched one of the legal sector's most comprehensive client feedback programmes - a move which has won us a number of prestigious awards.

Training contracts

We offer two-year training contracts in London, Bristol, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. During this time you'll undertake four seats across our broad range of practice areas, such as energy, intellectual property, corporate or insurance. Alongside this, you're guaranteed to spend a seat outside of your "home" office - an exciting prospect. You might be seconded to one of our top clients based in London or Europe, or spend time in one of our international offices such as Rio di Janeiro, Prague or Moscow.

You'll find a training contract with us offers a great range of responsibilities and a variety of interesting work. You'll enjoy plenty of access to senior partners, as well as the support, and autonomy, you need to really grow and develop your talent and expertise.

Who we're looking for

To find success with us, you'll be a high-achieving team player and strong communicator who thrives on a challenge. We welcome both non-law and law graduates who can contribute fresh thinking, an international outlook and formidable problem-solving skills. The work we do is intellectually demanding and professionally stretching - giving you an excellent grounding and a head start to your career in law.

Our training contracts are open to applicants who have 320 UCAS points (or equivalent) and who have (or are expecting) a 2:1 degree.
