KPMG Law is a global legal network operating in 81 countries with access to more than 2,800 legal professional colleagues worldwide. We provide advice on a range of legal matters, but we're always focussed on offering solutions which drive great business outcomes for our clients, and harness the power of working in multi-disciplinary teams, enabled by technology and data. By understanding the issues our clients face and drawing upon our legal expertise, as well as the wider KPMG capabilities, we’re able to deliver digitally-driven solutions to help our clients evolve and thrive in a new world. We’re reimagining law.

Our four-week KPMG Law Vacation programme gives you the chance to gain practical experience working within a leading professional services firm. You’ll find out more about our practice areas and the scale and breadth of the work we do, develop your legal and business knowledge and build technical skills. It's an opportunity to make new contacts, enhance your CV and discover what it’s like to be part of our supportive and vibrant community.

Working with some of the world's biggest companies, you could find yourself on projects ranging from Business Structuring, Regulatory Compliance and Contentious & Disputed Matters; right through to Deals & Finance, Workforce & People and Data, Digital and Technology. Or even, Private and Family Office matters for our high net worth clients. Underpinning all our work is our innovative use of technology. Our legal trainees have access to advanced digital solutions and we actively encourage a strong technology focus.

Plus, if you’re successful on the programme, you’ll have the opportunity to be considered for a KPMG Law Graduate programme in the same office location starting in 2022.
