Job Number: 751

The London office of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP is pleased to invite applicants for clerkship roles in the International Arbitration group. 

Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer's International Arbitration group is one of the largest and most experienced in the world, as highlighted in Chambers USA, Chambers Global, Chambers Latin America, The Legal 500 US, The Legal 500 UK, Global Arbitration Review, International Legal Alliance Summit, and US News & World Report, among other publications.  Our group acts as counsel on international commercial arbitrations and investor-State arbitrations, representing both Sovereign States and investors, and is made up of a diverse mix of lawyers from a range of cultural and legal backgrounds.

Our London group is looking to engage motivated lawyers and law students who are interested in pursuing a career in international arbitration.  The program offers clerks the chance to work on market-leading arbitrations with a market-leading team, assisting counsel in preparing robust cases for determination by international tribunals.  Arbitration clerks will be paid a competitive salary and awarded a (non-renewable) three or six-month contract. 

Applicants for the International Arbitration Clerkship should have graduated from a law degree (or have completed the requisite steps to graduate), and although post-graduate qualifications and an academic or working knowledge of arbitration are an advantage, these are not required.  Applicants must be fluent in written and spoken English, and fluency in other languages is an advantage.  Applicants must have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom. 

Applicants for the Clerkship program should send a cover letter (the cover letter should indicate on what basis the applicant has the right to live and work in the United Kingdom), resume, and law school transcripts to the London Clerkship Committee.
