  • The Dentons Training Contract

    Dentons are offering an amazing opportunity to kick start your legal career in a world class law firm.

    As a trainee you will undertake four six-month seats, including a contentious seat or attending an external litigation course. Your transactional experience will include banking (if in London) and corporate, construction or real estate (if in Milton Keynes). Middle East trainees will spend two seats in the UK and two in the Middle East.

    All our offices have an excellent reputation and training programme, who focus on high quality work for high quality clients. Our teams allow trainees to quickly become an integral part of the business and to be well supervised and supported during the training contract.

    You may also have the opportunity to work in one of our international offices or with one of our clients.

    Your legal training begins with a thorough induction and Professional Skills Course – but that's where the hand holding ends. As part of Dentons, you’ll be given all the responsibility you can handle. You’ll learn on the job by running parts of real cases, meeting with real clients and taking your place in the fast-paced and increasingly global world of business. After all, it’s this type of experience that makes great lawyers and prepares you for the daily pressures of your professional career. At Dentons you’ll get it almost from day one.
    If commercial law is your ambition, beginning your career with us will give you the fulfilment you’re looking for. You'll be welcomed into a team internationally renowned for its expertise. We’ll help you develop your skills and knowledge in an open and supportive environment.

    Dentons is committed to equality and diversity in all our employment practices.

In the UK, we do this through our recruitment processes, induction and training and through our Diversity Group, which has several employees and Partners as members. The Group ensures that our employees are well represented in decisions made on diversity issues and encourages new initiatives to raise awareness of differing backgrounds.

    We encourage diversity not only through our own practices, but also by supporting projects dedicated to advancement. These include Pure Potential and the Social Mobility Foundation, which help thousands of aspiring students each year; our contribution to the BSN Diversity Legal Table; the Birkbeck project, which works to increase access to higher education; Mosaic, a project that aims to raise the aspirations of young Muslims and expand their access to life-changing opportunities; and we are a founder member of LeGalBesT, a network of LGBT legal professionals.
