Thinking of a career in law? Here's five reasons why you should consider a legal apprenticeship at Stephenson Harwood.

1. You'll get paid to earn while you learn

£19,240 a year, in fact. Why not skip the University fees and debt, and gain vital practical experience in our firm instead?

2. You'll work on deals with international clients

Apprenticeships are mutually beneficial. You'll get stuck in to real casework, helping us deliver results for our clients, and we'll give you the incredible opportunity to gain hands-on experience that will prove invaluable throughout your career.

3. You'll gain a variety of crucial practical skills

The work you do during your apprenticeship will set you up for a successful career in law. From reviewing documents and carrying out research to helping compile court bundles, you'll play a vital role in our team as you provide support to fee earners in the progression of client matters.

4. You'll study towards a Level 3 Paralegal Apprenticeship

BPP will teach the course through a combination of online and face-to-face learning and you'll have one day a week dedicated entirely to your studies. When you complete your apprenticeship, you'll have gained recognised qualifications that will open a variety of doors for your future.

5. You'll gain lots of hands-on knowledge relating to the structure of the law

By spending every day in our offices, you'll get first-hand experience of how things work in an international law firm. We'll also assign you a dedicated supervisor and buddy, giving you plenty of opportunities for training and development along the way.
