MEET OUR PEOPLE
"I was surfing in Cape Town – and finishing my law studies there – when I happened to speak with Antti, a McKinsey consultant from Finland. He spoke about learning at a rapid pace through doing work with clients across different industries. He also got me excited about the benefits of joining a truly global firm. I joined McKinsey in January 2015. What I like is the sense of endless opportunities: I can form my path and develop my skills and knowledge in areas that interest me most. The people are great, the work environment is highly energetic, and the flexibility is unbeatable."
"I knew early on that I would change my career path after graduating from law school. McKinsey ticked all the right boxes in what I was looking for, most importantly regarding a business-focused, collaborative, and truly global working environment. I joined the Helsinki office in January 2016. What I like most is the emphasis placed on developing people, whether it is yourself, colleagues, or clients. Also, I really enjoy the opportunity to search for my long-term passion through exploring new things in the short-term. I joined McKinsey in 2015, and quickly realized that this place gave me - and continues to give me - precisely what I was looking for earlier: team work, creativity, and international experiences. I can safely say that it never gets boring here!"
McKinsey as an employer
McKinsey has a long-standing interest in attracting and retaining lawyers. In fact, Marvin Bower, the founder of management consulting as a profession, was a lawyer. He shaped McKinsey’s values around the professional principles he learned from his experience in law.
We hire people with law degrees because they make successful management consultants. For example, lawyers have the ability to address multiple conflicting points of view to solve complex problems. Lawyers also bring strong written and oral communication skills, which are essential for working side-by-side with clients.
Today, well over 500 consultants at McKinsey have law degrees. They joined McKinsey at various points in their careers—some during and some immediately after law school and some after practicing law for years. For many, one of the advantages of joining has been the opportunity to advance more rapidly than is generally possible in the legal profession.
Opportunities for law students and lawyers
You can join McKinsey as an Intern during law school, or after law school as a consultant on a full-time basis.
At McKinsey, you will not do legal work. You will work as a management consultant amongst other colleagues with a wide range of different academic and work backgrounds. You will also work with many experts, from data scientists and researchers to software and app designers.
Our internship programs are intended for students with at least 80 credits. Students joining us as interns will spend 2-3 months working as integral members of client service teams, getting the same experience as full-time consultants. For interns who are interested in an international experience, we offer the chance to do client work with international teams. If you complete the internship program successfully, you may be offered a permanent role with us.
