We are Dentons. The world’s largest law firm. With more than 12,500 people in 80+ countries around the world, we have unique breadth, depth and diversity. Alongside our award winning global work, we are committed to a culture of innovation, giving back and inclusion.
Dentons is designed to be different. The landscape we work in is changing at an accelerating pace. We embrace this change, and are looking for trainees and apprentices to join us in redefining what is possible and in shaping the future of law.
Your career at Dentons can shape up to be something extraordinary. It’s a place for those who are driven to challenge. To question. To break tradition. To put your career firmly into fast-forward. This could be the start of something big.
Main areas of work
Apprentices are able to choose from a wealth of seats to work with experts across our practice areas: banking and finance, competition, corporate, dispute resolution, ETI (energy, transport and infrastructure), PRM (people, reward and mobility), real estate, tax and TMT (technology, media and telecommunications).
Work is also about more than just work here. It's about the environment too, and the feeling you get from your team, office and beyond. Our teams are focused on inclusion, giving back, and on looking forward with innovation.
Who Should Apply?
There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ apprentice at Dentons and that’s the way we like it. Our expertise within the Firm is as diverse as the needs of our global clients. What we have in common is the ability to contribute to our growing success.
We generally look for a strong academic performance, but consider every application we receive in context and holistically. If you feel you can submit a strong application even if you do not meet these grades, we encourage you to apply.
We also encourage you to include mitigating circumstances if relevant.
We have also implemented the Rare Recruitment Contextual Recruitment System, to give us additional context to every candidate’s application.
University isn’t for everyone. Don’t let anyone tell you it is. If you want to train to become a solicitor, you just need a spot on the Dentons' Solicitor Apprenticeship.
You’ll start working towards your LLB university degree alongside your day job. No student debt. No eye-watering loans. Just an opportunity to learn and build your career.
The six-year programme aimed at school leavers combines eight seats of work-based learning and part-time study with BPP University.
