Legal Apprenticeships approved

“The current apprenticeships in legal services will remain as they are until the new framework, which is likely to be launched next year, is in place.”

Two new conveyancing apprenticeships are being created – one to become a licensed conveyancer and another to become a ‘conveyancing technician’.

The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) has approved the standards for new legal apprenticeships, allowing young people to qualify as solicitors, chartered legal executives, licensed conveyancers and paralegals through workplace-based training.

The minimum entry requirements for the solicitor apprenticeship are five GCSEs, including maths and English, and three A Levels at grade C or above, and/or work experience.

The process would take five to six years unless the apprentice had an exemption, for example a law degree or other relevant qualification.

The publication of standards by BIS means the government’s Trailblazer Apprenticeships in Law programme can move on to its next consultation stage, where curriculums and assessment are finalised.
