Clyde & Co Scotland is a litigation firm. The summer placement and the traineeship we offer here focus on Scottish litigation, so you’ll need to have a Scottish law qualification to join us here.


You might have the opportunity to experience life at one of our other UK or international offices down the line, but during your placement and traineeship you will be based in Scotland. This means we’re looking for people with a real passion for Scottish litigation – people who are keen to get involved in meaningful work from day one.
