DWF – Early Careers

Trainee Contracts

At DWF, we offer more than just the title of a ‘trainee solicitor’. We offer trainees the opportunity to develop into commercially focused professionals who will help drive our clients businesses forward.

Our outstanding people are at the heart of providing the experience that makes us a different legal business. When it comes to our training contracts, we look for talented, commercially minded individuals who are not only committed to a career in law, but who also get excited by how business and commerce work.

Our contracts provide a real taste of the variety of work we offer, helping trainees to make informed decisions about their future career path. Due the high quality of our Training Contract we were awarded ‘Top Law firm for training contracts’ and voted as one of the ‘Top five law firms in the Top 100 Companies for Graduates to Work for 2014 /2015’ by The Jobs Crowd.

Our Paralegal Trailblazer Legal Apprenticeship, launched in autumn 2016, is a great opportunity for candidates of any age, who either want to start their career as soon as possible or are looking for a career change, to enter the legal sector without the cost or time associated with college or university.

Apprentices gain valuable legal experience at one of the UK’s largest legal businesses, work towards a nationally recognised qualification, whilst also receiving a salary.

During the two year scheme, all our Legal Apprentices also work towards achieving a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services and attend BBP for formal teaching.
