Did you know you can start your training to become a qualified solicitor straight after your A-Levels? Earn while you learn.

As an Apprentice Solicitor, not only do you obtain extensive hands-on experience with experts in their fields, you will earn a full time salary, achieve an LLB (Hons) in Legal Practice and qualify as a solicitor, with no tuition fees and no student debt.

The solicitor apprenticeship is a level 7 apprenticeship and normally takes 5 to 6 years to complete.
