These are the law firms offering the most training contracts in 2019

Just trade in your personality at the door


Studying law is a lifestyle for law students. To paraphrase Skepta, it's not a culture, it's a religion. And committing to that at uni is all in search of one thing: the training contract.

But which firms are actually giving them out? Thankfully, Legal Cheek just released its 2020 firms most list, and has ranked the UK's top firms.

Linklaters (not the hotel in Neighbours) offers 100 training contracts. Meanwhile big red law dogs Clifford Chance is giving out 95 training contracts to lucky library addicts.

Allen & Overy, a name so mundane no jokes can be made about it, round out the top three, offering 90 training contracts.
