The IGNITE Programme
You might have studied computer science. Or taught yourself to code in the evenings. Or be developing an app on the side of your law degree. The only thing you must have is an excitement for what the meeting of law and tech can spark.
Ignite is a training contract with a rare emphasis on tech. A new route that’ll take you into some of the world’s most innovative learning environments. No other leading law firm offers anything like it.
It’s still a Clifford Chance training contract. You’ll collaborate with and work alongside– and be supported by – the brightest legal minds. You’ll have access to an unusual depth and breadth of experience. With secondment opportunities and chances to tailor your development throughout. You’ll be a fully qualified lawyer after two years-and positioned to shape the future.
Beyond that, you’ll have the time and space to develop new skills and solutions. To reconsider what tech can do for law. To redesign and streamline the way we operate. And redefine how we deliver the best results for our clients.
