An FE college is a state-funded provider that can offer a broad range of training options in a particular location to a range of employers.

A Specialist Provider is a training provider that is not state-funded and tends to offer training in specialist sectors or locations.

Universities offer training for Degree Apprenticeships or Higher Apprenticeships, sometimes running specialist courses for apprentices on a particular standard.

Our Solicitor Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships enable talented future lawyers to take an apprenticeship route all the way from leaving school to qualification as a solicitor*, without incurring any student debt. The University of Law delivers a Level 7 Solicitors Apprenticeship with LLB (Hons) Law in Legal Practice and Skills.

You earn as you learn over 5.5-6 years, spending 20% of the time studying and 80% of your timing working, putting learning into practice and developing the key skills needed to work as a Solicitor. A Skills Coach will visit to check on your progress and build a work-based portfolio. You will also complete weekly submitted tasks and get feedback from a ULaw tutor. 

The University of Law is one of the UK’s leading providers of legal education and training, and has trained more legal professionals at different stages of their careers than anyone else. Taught by professionals, over 90% of our tutors are lawyers. Furthermore, we have been successfully delivering apprenticeships since 2015, with hundreds of apprentices across the country working with a huge range of legal firms.

An apprenticeship is a cost-effective, interesting and rewarding way to become a solicitor. You will enter the workforce earlier and work alongside experienced staff, gaining a degree whilst you are employed. However, a Solicitor Apprenticeship is not an easy option, you still to demonstrate academic potential with a minimum of 5 good GCSE/s, including Maths and English, and 3 A levels at Grade C or above, or equivalent. Many employers will ask for higher grades.

All apprenticeship vacancies are created by employers. Register with ULaw to be updated as soon as any of our client employers have a new apprenticeship opportunity and also visit the National Apprenticeship Service website. 

“If you can pursue your ambitions with an apprenticeship, then 100% go for it because it's an opportunity to accumulate a wealth of experience.” - Marjana Uddin, Solicitor Apprentice with the BBC
