Wedlake Bell's approach is to recruit a small number of trainees each year. Our small, close knit intakes are able to receive high-quality training and experience high levels of client contact right from the start of their training. We are currently recruiting 8 trainees per year.
How do I apply?
Applications for the 2026 Training Contracts open on 1 November 2022. The deadline to submit your application is the 1 May 2024.
To apply, you will need to submit an online application form. This includes a covering letter.
What is the selection process?
All applications are reviewed and selected candidates are invited to attend a first round interview day. The first round interview day will take place in the summer and consists of a written assessment and an interview. This will likely be conducted as a virtual interview.
Successful candidates will be invited to attend an in-person final round interview and final written assessment which will take place at our office in London. On the day, there will also be a Networking lunch so that you can meet more members of the team and find out more about the firm.
