A guide to law apprenticeships
A legal apprenticeship is a route to becoming a lawyer that combines a paid job at a law firm with studying for formal qualifications, paid for by the government and your employer. It is an alternative to the traditional route of going to university and training to be a lawyer afterwards.
Leonie Slater - I started out as an apprentice – now I’m training as a licensed conveyancer
After leaving school at 16 with 12 GCSEs, I had been planning a career in travel and tourism, but soon decided I wanted to pursue a career with stronger long-term prospects. So, when I saw an apprentice role advertised at law firm Birkett Long, I applied and was taken on as a legal apprentice.
