What made you apply for a Training Contract with Dentons?

Being the biggest law firm in the world, Dentons brings with it the scale of work to match. I wanted to be involved in city quality work in an office location outside of London, as well having a whole host of international and secondment opportunities.

What has been the highlight of your Training Contract so far?

As well as working in 3 different teams in 3 different office locations so far, the main highlight has been having the opportunity to go on secondment and work in-house for a key client of Dentons.

What challenges did you have to overcome transitioning from student to trainee?

Getting up early every day! Only joking (slightly), mainly adjusting to the work timetable, getting used to working in an office and the change in lifestyle.

What advice would you offer to a student looking to apply to a Training Contract with Dentons?

Utilise the experience you have gained regardless of whether this is legal, non-legal or even a hobby to demonstrate the skills you have developed and how these tie in with the skills required of a trainee solicitor at Dentons. Most importantly, be yourself!
