DWF Training Contract

Our unique training contract is divided up into six four-month seats which gives you the opportunity to experience more practice areas than a traditional training contract. You will get a real taste of the variety of work we offer and will be able to make a more informed decision about your future career. You can even return to your preferred department for your final seat; enabling up to eight months pre-qualification experience in your chosen field. Many of our trainees also have the opportunity to complete a client secondment.

During your training contract, DWF will continue to invest in your future. You’ll complete a number of legal technical training sessions and be provided with a full practice group induction each time you move seats. You will also meet with a member of our dedicated HR team halfway through each seat to discuss and review your progress.

We’re not just looking for bright and enthusiastic graduates, but those with the potential to become outstanding, commercially-focussed lawyers. Those who will help our clients achieve their business goals by providing innovative solutions and who think differently about their needs. 

We want talented, ambitious and resilient people, who enjoy working as part of a team and can respond positively to a challenge. Our trainees bring something new to our existing teams. Commercial acumen, great organisational skills and a fresh insight are all hallmarks of a DWF trainee.
