Solicitor Apprenticeship 6 Years (School Leavers)

Our Solicitor Apprenticeship gives school leavers a route to qualification as a lawyer after completing A Levels.

How it works

Trainee Solicitor Apprentices join us in September after receiving A Level results. On the programme, you will work closely with high-performing lawyers at all levels in the firm, supporting them on a range of legal tasks.

The complexity of the work will develop as you progress through the programme.

As a Trainee Solicitor Apprentice you will:

  • Spend four days a week on the job training doing practical, hands-on work with your department and one day a week off the job training studying with the University of Law.
  • Reach degree level within the Solicitor Apprenticeship.
  • Prepare for and complete your Solicitor Qualifying Exams (SQE 1 and 2).
  • Complete Qualifying Work Experience.

This year we have apprenticeship opportunities in our offices in Milton Keynes, Bristol, Oxford, and Nottingham. Applications are live now until 26 April 2024. If successful, you would join the firm in September 2024. We ask for a minimum of 3 B’s at A Level.
