CMS Solicitor Apprenticeship
You’ll gain exposure to a wide range of sectors whilst rotating through our departments. Currently, we’re top in the market for our clients in the following sectors: Consumer Products, Energy, Financial Services, Infrastructure and Project Finance, Hotels & Leisure, Life Sciences and Healthcare, Real Estate and Technology, Media and Telecommunications. You may also have the opportunity to undertake a secondment to another office or to a client near to completing your apprenticeship.
You’ll be assigned to a University of Law campus close to your office location (London, Bristol or Manchester). This will enable you to take part in practical and academic activities and make full use of the library and research facilities. Dedicating one day a week to your studies, you’ll benefit from a blended style of learning including work-based, supervised, and independent study, plus ‘live’ tutor sessions to aid your legal understanding and build essential academic and professional skills. You’ll receive regular visits by your skills coach in order to review your progress.
By completing University of Law assessments, you’ll have the opportunity to gain an LLB while preparing for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) Parts 1 and 2.
