The legal apprenticeship is a great alternative for those wishing to pursue a career in the legal profession, without the huge financial burden incurred by fees and student loans. Participants join the firm’s London office and spend their first 12 months in Business Services departments (such as Risk and Compliance and the Information Centre). Here, they gain an understanding of how the firm operates before being transferred into one of our legal practices. By the end of the programme, participants will have the same level of qualification as trainee solicitors who qualify through the traditional route.
AAB at A Level (or equivalent). School leavers who wish to pursue an alternative route to qualification as a solicitor rather than attending a full-time university course.
