Graduate Training Contract Applications open from 1 December 2023 to 31 January 2024.

Each year, Winston & Strawn London aims to take on trainees. We seek well-rounded, motivated, imaginative people with strong academics who will work hard for our clients, interact well with others in a close-knit team, and make meaningful contributions to our continued growth and success in London, as well as globally.

We only recruit ambitious individuals looking to build a long-term career at the firm. We want all of our trainees to stay with the firm upon qualification and continue to develop as associates with a view to ultimately become a partner. Consequently, we invest significant time and effort in our trainees and see them as critical to the promotion and success of the office.

Given the nature of our work in London, we employ bright and agile minds. We look for the following criteria when evaluating candidates: (i) common sense and integrity; (ii) enthusiasm and drive; (iii) interests outside of the law; (iv) strong academics; (v) commercial awareness; (vi) interpersonal skills with the mindset of a team player; (vii) willingness to take responsibility; and (viii) flexibility.
