Law and Legal Executive Apprenticeships in the UK from notgoingtouni

This page has lists of the latest law training courses and apprenticeships in the UK including paralegal apprentice opportunities and legal executive vacancies. Recruitment and career progression in the legal sector has seen somewhat of a change in recent years and the traditional route to becoming a lawyer (degree, law school, law exams, trainee position, called to the bar) is now not the only route.

The law firm apprenticeship is one of the growth areas and an increasing number of these are now available. In a survey by Skills for Justice of over 50 law firms, it was reported that 83% of firms said they would be interested in taking on apprentices.

Most apprentices in this sector will receive on-the-job training that takes them towards a formal qualification, for example as a legal executive through the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).

Examples of key programmes for legal apprenticeship are:

- The Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship in Legal Administration (used by many legal organisations it is for those at GCSE and AS level)
- The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship
- The Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship in Legal Services

A typical apprenticeship programme is made up of two phases:

- a one-year introductory apprenticeship
- a two-year advanced legal apprenticeship

Typically, apprentices are employed for 30 hours per week on a permanent contract but some will work on a fixed term contract.

The frameworks for these are developed by CILEx in conjunction with Skills for Justice, the National Apprenticeship Service and national law firms.

It is important to note that taking the legal executive apprentice route does not lead automatically to becoming a lawyer or solicitor. However, you can use these qualifications later as partial exemptions if you chose to study for a traditional law degree or the CILEx Level 6 professional qualification to become a Chartered Legal Executive Lawyer.
