Training Programme

Womble Bond Dickinson’s training contract forms part of their early talent pipeline. Trainees will have an opportunity to spend six months in four Business Groups, gaining a real breadth of experience. This is your training contract and it's up to you to make the most of it, but along the way the firm offers fantastic opportunities to develop your legal career in a growing firm.

Your supervisors are trained and fully supported on an ongoing basis. You'll have access to high quality work and senior client contact. Womble Bond Dickinson regularly seconds trainees to its most high profile clients. The firm is looking for people across seven of our UK offices. There is no typical Womble Bond Dickinson trainee - trainees come from varied backgrounds and bring a range of different experiences. 

What all of the firm’s lawyers do share is an enthusiasm for law and a passion for our business. Beyond that, trainees should have a strong academic background, although this is not the only criteria used when shortlisting applications. It's important that candidates can demonstrate honesty, drive and motivation, good communication skills, resilience, adaptability, diversity of thought and commercial sense.

Work Placements

Womble Bond Dickinson run one-week long summer work placements which forms part of the recruitment process, and also acts as an application for a training contract. During the week you’ll get involved with the business as a whole as well as learn more about the firm's culture, the people who work in the business and get a feel for the work of a junior lawyer. The firm encourages early applications.
