Solicitor Apprentice Vacancies

We are looking for two talented and enthusiastic solicitor apprentices to join our team based in Bethnal Green. Candidates would need to have completed their LLB law degree with minimum of 2:1 or GDL and be available to commence their solicitor apprenticeship course in September 2023.

You can find out more information on solicitor apprenticeships as a route to qualifying as a solicitor at the SRA website.

Aspiring solicitors can qualify through the solicitor apprenticeship. This provides an alternative to the traditional qualification route through university and may suit candidates who want to ‘earn as they learn’. As apprentices, your training and assessments are paid for through the apprenticeship levy fund.

Solicitor apprentices must pass the SQE assessment to qualify as a solicitor. The apprenticeship includes SQE training, as well as the assessments, and typically takes …30 months for those with LLB law degrees. At the end, providing apprentices pass the assessment and meet our character and suitability requirements, they can qualify as a solicitor.”

Please see the job description and person specification below, and complete the application questions with these specifications in mind.

NEW Migrant Special Support Project

We are happy to announce the launch our new Migrant Special Support Project.

This is a new model of advice aimed at providing specialist support for those whose first language is not English or those who have limited use of it.

The Migrant Special Support (MSS) Project offers a tailored service to the user. The MSS caseworker will make regular contact with these users and offer ongoing structured support via regular meetings. The support offered will include legal advice and casework, an income maximization assessment, assistance with personal money and debt management, soft training on improving life skills and referral to other services such as local colleges and ESOL. MMS will also act as a referring organisation to other beneficial services such as mental health day centres, alcohol and/or drug management programmes, women’s support groups and other similar services where appropriate.

The aim of the project is that the users will develop better life management skills through targeted intervention. It will stop clients repeatedly calling upon advice agencies by assisting them to address issues early before reaching regular crisis points.

Clients can be referred to us through our website at https://legaladvicecentre.london/migrant-special-support-project/ or by telephone 020 3606 0372.
