Placement details

A Solicitor Apprenticeship offers a unique opportunity to gain extensive practical legal experience working on legal projects with experienced colleagues. As a Solicitor Apprentice, you will join a fast-paced, dynamic working environment where personal resilience and a willingness to learn are key to success.

As a part of your apprenticeship, you will study towards a LLB (Hons) in Legal Practice and Skills degree delivered by the University of Law, the largest provider of legal education in the UK. You will spend one day per week studying legal foundation subjects and skills modules and preparing for a range of assessments, including the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE). Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, subject to SRA character and suitability checks, you will become a qualified solicitor and have a chance to join our Newly Qualified Solicitor recruitment process.

During your apprenticeship you will be supported by a supervisor who is an experienced solicitor, a dedicated Early Talent Team, and fellow legal apprentices. You will receive full training which will combine on-the-job learning and formal structured sessions to ensure you are fully equipped to succeed in the role. You will be involved in client meetings, assist solicitors with legal matters, conduct legal research, draft correspondence and documents, and prepare files and bundles. As you progress in your role, you will be introduced to more advanced tasks to help you work towards the level 7 degree apprenticeship.

Successful candidates will start their roles in September 2024. This year our opportunities are available in:

  • Birmingham
  • London
  • Manchester

Applications for 2024 Solicitor Apprenticeship programme are now open and will close on 1st February 2024 at 11:59PM.
