NEW: The 2024 Legal Cheek Solicitor Apprenticeships Most List

The Solicitor Apprenticeships Most List serves as an interactive guide for aspiring apprentices, allowing them to assess their preferred law firms based on apprenticeship numbers, pay, office locations, and more. Each firm profile, featuring a distinctive Legal Cheek View, provides a comprehensive analysis contributed by apprentices within the organisation. This offers sixth formers valuable insights into the actual apprentice experience at each firm.

The Apprenticeships List complements our popular Firms Most List, which offers deeper insights into life at the firms and is geared towards university graduates pursuing qualification through the more traditional training contract route.

Each profile on the Apprenticeships Most List also provides crucial information about the structure of each apprenticeship, the approach to studying the LLB and SQE, office culture and social scene. It also highlights key deadlines for applications, insight days, and other apprenticeship-focused recruitment events.
