Solicitor Apprenticeship

A solicitor progresses legal matters and transactions, applying legal knowledge and commercial judgement to produce solutions which meet clients' needs.

This six-year LLB in Legal Practice enables apprentices to build a work-based portfolio to accompany the powerful knowledge and strategies they learn in the classroom. There is also a two-year accelerated option, for apprentices who are already law graduates.

These programmes have been designed to support professional development by offering a demonstrably high-standard of education and training to apprentices, whilst they practice their advocacy skills in the University’s replica crown court and participate in a range of co-curricula activities. Apprentices will study subjects from across the whole legal spectrum, including business and commercial law; contracts and conveyancing; criminal and tort law; litigation and dispute resolution; ethics and human rights; and English, Welsh and EU law.
