What type of work can I expect to receive?

Our vacation schemes are designed to give you a realistic insight into what a training contract at MoFo can offer you. It is the best way for you to demonstrate your potential to us and it is our sole method of selecting our future trainees. During your vacation scheme you will be given real work for real clients. You will be included in every aspect of firm life from social events to office-wide training sessions, from legal research to client meetings. You’ll get to meet others on the scheme as well as our partners, associates and trainees.

From day one as a MoFo trainee you’ll get direct contact with clients. You will feel valued and involved. The hands-on experience we offer will help you understand the legal and commercial context of the advice we give.

You will quickly experience the satisfaction of going the extra mile for our clients. We’ll provide the opportunity for you to work with lawyers from a wide range of jurisdictions, and also indirectly with lawyers in our network of offices across the US, Asia and Europe.

You will work in at least three areas of law during your two-year training programme and typically spend six months in four different departments. Options include Business Restructuring and Insolvency, Capital Markets, Corporate, Finance, Funds, Litigation, Tax, and Technology Transactions.

We believe that exposure to the broader MoFo network is an invaluable part of your development so there are also opportunities to gain corporate or litigation experience in our Singapore office through our trainee secondment scheme.

Our small trainee intake means that you will get a significant amount of responsibility when working on the complex global matters that we advise on from London.
