Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University Faculty Of Law Vacancies

Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University Faculty Of Law Vacancies


Our company Herbert Smith Freehills has recently launched an International Legal Learnership Programme (ILLP), which is part of the firm’s ALT Services. We are looking at affording 20 law graduates the opportunity to participate in this ground breaking programme.

Just a brief background, we opened an office in Johannesburg at the end of 2015.  The team is now 36 strong, including 6 partners, 19 fee-earners and 11 Business Services colleagues.  The team’s hard work over the last year has been recognized with top awards including rankings in Chambers Global 2017, project finance and infrastructure journal IJGlobal and Euromoney’s Expert Guide to Women in Business Law.


Herbert Smith Freehills is looking for bright, technically excellent law graduates who have the capacity to learn quickly and work effectively as part of our fast-growing global team.

The role will afford them a chance to grow their skills and profile for candidate attorney positions, as well as the option of embracing a rewarding and challenging alternative career path.

The 18-month programme offers the opportunity to:

·         develop client and commercial skills

·         increase technical capability

·         build personal leadership qualities

all whilst gaining valuable experience as a Legal Analyst, and with exposure to global clients.
