Legal advice apprenticeships

Types of apprenticeships that you can apply for in the legal advice sector.

Legal advisors are needed to help the general public understand legal matters that relate to their personal and professional lives.

Training opportunities

Many of the legal advice providers in the country are not-for-profit bodies that are funded publically. Many people in legal advice are volunteers who are not looking for career progression routes. So with an apprenticeship you can progress quickly.
