Virtual Learning Experience

Virtual Work Experience


At Freshfields you’ll be working with the world’s best lawyers. These driven, focused and ambitious people will be your colleagues, mentors, teachers and friends.


Very soon, they’ll come to rely on you, especially when a deal is closing, you’re nearing a settlement or a trial is approaching. All the work you’ll do is vital, and you’ll get plenty of client exposure and responsibility.

We provide a worldwide service, so you’ll need to consider cultural, political and economic factors. You can apply for a secondment in our global network of 28 offices (including Paris, Hong Kong, Dubai and New York). You can also apply for a client secondment, including with one of our pro bono clients.

Even when you’re in London, you’ll still be working in diverse, multinational teams, perhaps taking instructions from Singapore in the morning and talking to counsel in Brazil in the afternoon.

We are our people

We strive to be exceptional and meet the highest standards. We value our people and treat them with respect, consideration and courtesy.
