Type of opportunity:
The DWF vacation scheme takes place in June, dates of which depend on location. If you are in your penultimate or final year of a law degree, final year of a non-law degree or a graduate of any degree discipline then you are eligible to apply. Applications will be open from September until January, and you must make an online application via our application portal Apply4Law.
The business recruits the majority of its trainees through the vacation scheme, so it's a good opportunity to get ahead and see why DWF is the right business for you. The two-week vacation scheme gives you the chance to work with partners, associates and trainees across two different practice groups. You'll work on live legal matters and will be given responsibility right from the start.
This is combined with a variety of internal workshops and presentations, helping you understand DWF as a business. You'll also complete a group project that's designed to aid your professional development and provide you with some of the essential skills of a successful commercial lawyer.
As well as gaining fantastic experience, you'll also be paid reasonably for your time on the vacation scheme.
