Want to become a lawyer but worried about the university fees? Why not consider a Solicitor Apprenticeship Programme with us.
Our six-year programme allows you to study for an LLB degree in Legal Practice, build your career and become a qualified solicitor whilst working and earning without having to pay the university fees.
We work with Cilex Law School and The City Law School at City, University of London, to deliver the Solicitor Apprenticeship Programme. As a Solicitor Apprentice you will work in our offices based in London. Four days a week will be spent working in our practice groups and one day will be allocated to study. You will spend a year in each practice group where you will be involved in many of the day-to-day tasks of a trainee lawyer. Throughout your apprenticeship you will experience a broad range of our practice areas as you rotate through a variety of groups.
Training and Support
Throughout your apprenticeship programme and in addition to your studies you will receive regular training. This could come in the form of on-the-job training with your supervisor or more formal training sessions through the Charles Russell Speechlys’ Skills Academy. In each group that you work in you will be assigned a dedicated supervisor who will work with you to ensure you are developing the required skills and knowledge. In addition to this, you will have a personal tutor at The City Law School who will meet you at regular intervals throughout the programme.
