'Law Apprenticeships' Insight Day
Completion of A-Levels is a real crossroads. What do you do next? Go to university, get a job, go travelling, temporarily bury your head in the sand? For some individuals, university is a natural progression. For others it’s not so straight forward, with financial implications creating an impossible barrier – cue apprenticeships… more specifically law apprenticeships!
If a student’s ambition is to pursue a legal career, bypassing university in favour of an alternative form of learning which involves a combination of study and ‘on the job learning’ in a law firm, a law apprenticeship could be the answer. With a whole new raft of law apprenticeships now on offer, leading to qualification as a solicitor, chartered legal executive or paralegal, there has never been a more exciting time to explore law apprenticeship opportunities.
Carefully crafted by experienced lawyers and delivered in house at schools, our Insight Day aims to provide students with the chance to explore these innovate new apprenticeships, which are now being rolled out in law firms across the country.
