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' apprenticeship scheme. 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 combines eight seats of work-based learning in our London office and part-time study with BPP University.


There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ trainee or apprentice at Dentons and that’s the way we like it. Our expertise within the Firm are as diverse as the needs of our global clients. What we have in common is the ability to contribute to our growing success.

Trainees- You must have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 degree (or equivalent) and a minimum of ABB at A-Level (or equivalent) to be considered.

Apprentices - We do need to see a strong record of academic and extra-curricular achievement. We’re looking for 7 GCSEs at grade 6 or above (including Maths and English) and ABB at A-Level.
