Application process

Application process

There's no one type of person at King & Wood Mallesons, but our well-defined culture does mean that you'll need to be in possession of certain key attributes, whatever the level of your application. 

  • Enthusiastic. We're looking for true engagement with not just the field of law, but also the wider world of business too.
  • Commercially-minded. Not just so you can run your own desk, but so you can become a useful addition to your clients and their own business strategies.
  • Team player. You'll understand the value in looking good by making others look good too. 
  • Common sense. There's a point at which academia and theory needs to be qualified by the reality of business. You'll understand that, whilst also maintaining the highest technical and ethical standards.

Whatever you're applying for, submit your application form on this site. You can apply for an open day, vacation scheme or a training contract.
