Solicitor Apprenticeship

This is a fantastic opportunity to qualify as a solicitor, whilst gaining a degree. The Solicitor Apprenticeship is a six-year level 7 programme. You’ll work four days a week and spend one day a week studying towards the LLB in Legal Practice and Skills with the University of Law. Study is by blended learning and all of your tuition/ assessment fees will be paid.

As well as studying towards your LLB in Legal Practice and Skills you will also be required to take the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s (SRA) new centralised assessment, the Solicitors Qualifying Examinations (SQE), which will be sat in two parts.

You will receive support and guidance from both us and the University of Law throughout your apprenticeship. Once you have passed the SQE assessments, you will be a qualified solicitor.
