The Clifford Chance Training Contract is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for aspiring lawyers, opening a door to countless opportunities that will allow you to flourish into a best-in-class professional. But signing your contract is only the beginning. It takes commitment, dedication, and perseverance to complete.
When it comes to ensuring that the best candidates pick Clifford Chance, how can we make them not only prepared for the rigours of a Training Contract, but actively motivated by the gritty, honest truth?
When beginning a training contract, the real contract is not something you sign. The real contract is the one you enter into with yourself – the commitment you make at the start of your journey to see it through to the end, and the promises you keep to yourself along the way that push you to your true potential. We spoke to seven past and present trainees at Clifford Chance and asked them to write a letter to their past selves, sharing what they wish they had known at the start of their journey, and what inspires them to persevere. This is ‘The Real Contract’.
