We recruit 18 trainees each year. Although there is no typical WFW trainee, there are certain qualifications, skills and traits that we look for.
You will need a 2.1 or above (predicted if you have yet to graduate) or equivalent, and a commendation or higher in the Law Foundations Course (PGDL) if you have completed it. We also look for at least ABB from A-level results, 34 points from IB or the equivalent if you have taken other qualifications.
If you have not achieved these academic grades, there is an opportunity to explain individual circumstances, and applications are read as a whole.
We use Rare contextual recruitment software which allows us to understand individual academics in the context of how they were achieved.
