There’s no mould to fit for our apprenticeship programme. We want you to be you. With all your quirks, interests and ambition.

We do need to see a strong record of academic and extra-curricular achievement. We’re looking for 7 GCSEs at grade 6 or above (including Maths and English) and ABB at A Level. We look at every form received, and take extenuating circumstances into account for grades that do not meet our requirements. We have also implemented the Rare Recruitment Contextual Recruitment System, to give us additional context to every candidate’s application. We’ll also be considering the circumstances faced by students in 2020, and the impact this will have had on grades.

Challengers aren’t only defined by their academic ability. You’re connected by an attitude. The desire to exist beyond parameters. To build something you’re proud of. To define the future of law in an evolving environment.
