Skills for Justice is the Sector Skills Council for the Justice, Community Safety and Legal Services sectors. It aims to work with key employers, governments and agencies within the skills system, to better equip workforces with the right skills for the job. They tailor programmes to ensure that prospective employees get the right level of skills which are relevant to the industry in which they wish to work. 

This programme has widened access to the legal profession, by involving people in paralegal apprenticeships. There has been concern that not enough is being done to improve social mobility in the profession and also the changes in training itself. The scrapping of minimum salaries and legal aid cuts are changing the face of the industry. 

Browne Jacobson's apprenticeship scheme offers school leavers an alternative route into the legal profession. The initiative has been set up in partnership with West Nottinghamshire College and ILEX Tutorial College, which is the wholly owned college of The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). 

The scheme offered six apprentices from Nottinghamshire the opportunity to gain valuable employment at one of the region’s leading law firms whilst gaining industry recognised qualifications. Based at Browne Jacobson’s headquarters at Mowbray House, the apprentices assist the firm’s technical claims, education and property teams with a range of business support functions.
