Clifford Chance has signed up the College of Law (CoL) to run every aspect of vocational training for its future trainee solicitors.
The school, which already provides a bespoke Legal Practice Course (LPC) for the firm, will now deliver tailor-made vocational programmes for its trainees over a five-year period.
It will now be the sole provider of the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), the Trainee Litigation Programme (TLP) and Professional Skills Course (PSC) for all Clifford Chance trainees.
The pair are also joining forces to provide the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test (QLTT) to qualify the firm's overseas lawyers for practice in England and Wales.
Head of HR development at Clifford Chance Tony King said: "By partnering with the College of Law, we can ensure our people will receive the high quality training which will prepare them for handling challenging client work and providing the best service to our clients."
