If you are an LLB or Scots Law student, you can apply in the penultimate year of your undergraduate degree.

DWF will pay for course fees for the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Diploma for candidates who have yet to start the qualifications at the point of a training contract offer.
However, this is only applicable for candidates in England applying for a training contract to commence before 2022, as we will then be introducing the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) and will no longer fund the LPC for applicants starting in 2022 or beyond. Please note that this does not affect funding for the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice.
For any candidate who has already started or completed either qualification, we do not reimburse these costs.
DWF will pay for the course fees only.
