Riyadh Training Program

Gibson Dunn is delighted to offer training to a selected group of exceptional students and graduates. We are looking for individuals who can take the initiative and fulfil our clients’ needs, who have strong interpersonal and organisational skills and who can rise to the challenge of working directly with partners within small, focused teams and having client contact early in their careers. You should have excellent academics and a strong interest in a legal career.

Why Train at Gibson Dunn?

Gibson Dunn is one of the world’s leading law firms. Our lawyers work on some of the highest-profile deals and disputes involving cutting-edge legal issues often across multiple jurisdictions for a wide range of global industry leading clients. In this programme, you will be part of a group of intellectually bright, ambitious, and high-achieving trainees, and get first-class, hands-on experience. Gibson Dunn trainees assume a high level of responsibility in each and every matter they work on. Trainees receive all the support they need, both informally through being part of a friendly, helpful and sociable team, and more formally through the firm’s mentoring and ‘buddy’ system.

The Training Programs

Graduate Training Program (COOP)

We work closely with Universities in Riyadh to hire Saudi students under the Cooperative Education Program.

The program provides Co-op Trainees an opportunity to work closely with experienced lawyers and gain hands on experience working across the different practice areas. We welcome students twice a year: every January and every September.

Trainee Associate Program

We welcome applications from Saudi graduates who are looking to build their career in Riyadh. As a Gibson Dunn Trainee Associate, you will work alongside some of the most talented lawyers in Saudi Arabia, the Middle East, Europe, the U.S., and Asia.

The firm is proud to have a strong and sustained commitment to pro bono work, and trainees are strongly encouraged to participate in this tradition.

We recruit on a rolling basis for Trainee Associates in Riyadh. To make an application, please send your CV and transcripts to [email protected].
