“The legal apprentice role has been a great opportunity. It has allowed me to learn the trade first hand from professionals in the field such as lawyers and paralegals. I have been able to feel what it is like to work in a busy and diverse firm. My team are fantastic and are always there to help. I would recommend joining the apprenticeship scheme to anybody who is serious about Law.”
