Support Videos

At Clifford Chance we're committed to developing you and your career. We provide wide-ranging support for both your personal and professional development from the moment you start your Training Contract, right though to qualification. Take a look at the short films below and you’ll see how.

Career Development Meetings

We're committed to providing you with the utmost support and individual contact over the course of your Training Contract. Laura tells you more about the opportunities on offer including contact with a designated development specialist.

Seat Allocation

Seat allocation can be a fairly daunting process but it's also the time when you really start to see your Training Contract take shape. With each seat move you'll feel more of an expert in your field whether you are going on a client secondment, moving to an international office for six months, moving into one of our core groups or joining a niche practice area that you really can't wait to know more about.

Performance Optimisation Programme

Our award-winning, unique Performance Optimisation Programme (POP), created in conjunction with The Positive Group, is designed to raise awareness of the importance of psychological well-being in the workplace and help you to prepare for working life. Hear more about this fantastic training programme from Laura.

Pro Bono

Clifford Chance is a firm that is truly committed to pro bono work and as a trainee you'll have the opportunity to contribute to this effort in a number of ways.


Qualification is an extremely important time for you and our highly skilled trainee workforce is extremely important to us. You'll discuss your future with partners and we will support you through the process from beginning to end. We've invested in you from the outset and therefore we care about your future as much as you do. Laura shares more about what to expect during qualification.
