When to apply

There is no such things as a ‘typical’ trainee solicitor 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.

When to apply

We accept training contract applications from penultimate-year law students, final-year law and non-law students and those who have completed their undergraduate law or non-law degree.

We look for candidates who have achieved, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 degree (or equivalent) and a minimum of ABB at A Level (or equivalent). We do look at every form received, and take extenuating circumstances into account for grades that do not meet our requirements. We have also implemented the Rare Recruitment Contextual Recruitment System, to give us additional context to every candidate’s application.

We are keen to hear from nationals of Gulf Cooperation Council countries interested in training to become England and Wales qualified. We are also interested in candidates who can speak and work in fluent Arabic, although this is not a requirement of the program.

Current Opportunities 

We are now hiring for our 2022 Middle East Trainee intake. To apply for this you will need to have completed your LPC by August 2022.
