Firms Pledge Support for Apprentiships

March 6, 2014

This week across the UK, law firms and legal departments including the BBC and Clyde & Co, are promoting their Legal Services Apprenticeship vacancies as part of National Apprenticeship Week.


The Legal Services Apprenticeship frameworks are awarded by the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).CILEx’s President Stephen Gowland, who began his own legal career as an apprentice, said: “Legal Services Apprentices have a bright future ahead of them. I urge the legal sector to follow these early adopters and realise the great potential these talented individuals can bring to your business.”


National Apprenticeship Week celebrates apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy. CILEx’s team of Regional Development Officers are attending careers and apprenticeship fairs and employer-focused events across England and Wales to promote the benefits of the Legal Services Apprenticeship route.The BBC’s in-house legal team announced this week that it will take on three Legal Services Apprentices in their London office. The apprentices, in addition to their CILEx qualification, will gain experience working in the rights and business affairs teams within the BBC, learning about the BBC group’s commercial and corporate interests.


The apprentices will be taught by CILEx Law School.Sarah Jones, group general counsel for the BBC said: “We are delighted to be able to offer legal apprenticeships covering employment and commercial aspects of the BBC group’s work.”Lance Mason Solicitors in Blackburn have pledged to recruit eight Legal Services Apprentices as part of their growth plans for the future. Mark Fallon, chief operating officer at the firm said: “We want to attract and retain local talent and help them realise their potential while they grow with Lance Mason. For the right people, with the right attitude, the opportunities here are unlimited.”


Legal practices Clyde & Co, Weightmans, Kennedys, Lodders, Lupton Fawcett Denison Till and Gordon Brown Law Firm also have Legal Services Apprenticeship vacancies for aspiring lawyers.Yorkshire law firm Gordons has so far employed ten Legal Services Apprentices who over a five-year period will train to become Chartered Legal Executive lawyers.


In an award ceremony this week, their 20-year-old Legal Services Apprentice Jasmine Cawkwell, was named Higher Apprentice of the Year at the Leeds Apprenticeship Awards. Jasmine was praised by the judging panel after being the first non-solicitor to be appointed to the Leeds Junior Lawyers Division committee.Barbara Rollin, partner and head of Gordons’ apprenticeship programme said: “Progression opportunities for the apprentices are limitless and there is no reason why they should not be partners of the future or even become managing partner.”
