We were an integral part of the Skills for Justice-led steering committee directing the design and development of the Level 3 and Level 4 Apprenticeships in Legal Services. Along with a small number of other law firms, we have also developed the qualifications and standards for the new trailblazer apprenticeships and we have been one of only a handful of firms running the new schemes since September 2016.
If you are looking to start your career or maybe you’re looking for a career change, our apprenticeships could be just what you are looking for! Click on the links to find out more about our legal and non-legal apprenticeships.

We want to attract and retain the very best people. Apprenticeships are a great way of bringing new talent into the business and that’s why we got involved. Since 2013, DWF has had 106 apprentices, which includes new recruits and existing employees – with 87% still either working through or have completed their apprenticeship.

"My role with the Personal Injury legal team includes admin duties such as helping to prepare enclosures and briefs. I achieved good GCSE results and chose to take an apprenticeship as I wanted a more hands on approach to learning. Undertaking the apprenticeship has helped me to become more independent and develop motivational skills. This will help me to secure a professional role in the future. My advice to new apprentices is to be proactive."
