Become a Legal Apprentice

Job Description

We are now accepting applications for our 2020 Solicitor Apprenticeship, offering aspiring lawyers an alternative route into the profession.

The six-year solicitor apprenticeship, in partnership with The University of Law (ULaw), aims to give aspiring young trainees, who may have found the financial cost of a traditional university route off-putting, the opportunity to have a successful career in law.

The scheme will allow you to gain hands-on experience in the legal environment, whilst completing an undergraduate degree (LLB, Hons), and a Solicitor Qualifying Exam Legal Practice Course (LPC/SQE) at ULaw, as well as a period of recognised training along the way.

The scheme enables you to qualify whilst earning a salary, meaning you don’t have to pay for tuition fees and can instead, earn while you learn.

You will be based in our Southport office employed to work 4 days a week, with 1 day being dedicated to study. You will work your way through the business building upon your legal knowledge, whilst training to become a qualified solicitor.

Entry Requirements:
8 GCSE grades *A to C Maths and English.
3 A’ Levels at grade C or above or the BTEC Equivalent
