Legal Apprenticeship

The Mishcon Solicitor Apprenticeship is a six year programme. You will gain an LLB (Hons) in Legal Practice from The University of Law and at the end of the programme you will qualify as a solicitor. All of your tuition fees will be paid and best of all, you will earn a salary whilst you are training and gaining your qualification. Our 2021 applications are now open.

The Apprenticeship

You will be based in our London office, working alongside leading lawyers across our five departments (Corporate, Real Estate, Litigation, Employment & Private). During the first four years you will complete four annual rotations and in the final two years you will join the trainee solicitor intake with four six month rotations. Throughout the six years you will be working for four days per week and spend one day studying with The University of Law.

What are we looking for in a candidate?

At Mishcon de Reya our junior lawyers are the future of our business. The future of law is not predictable - the years to come will look nothing like the years that came before. So we need shapers. We need bold individuals who can adapt to seismic changes across the legal, social and political spheres. We need creative thinkers who can revolutionise the way we work.

Strong academic results are desirable, we would like to see 6 GCSEs at grade A*-C or equivalent (including Maths and English) and 3 A-Levels at grade BBB.

In my first few months as a Mishcon apprentice, I have been able to learn so much from my team and participate in many interesting projects. I have most appreciated the value Mishcon places on developing our knowledge and skills in a variety of areas and the extensive opportunities we have for learning.

Mishcon has given me an amazing opportunity to learn, collaborate, and gain invaluable experience whilst working amongst the friendliest people. There is a strong atmosphere of support, motivation, and care for each member of the Mishcon team, and I look forward to spending many years being a part of it.

Working for Mishcon these past few months have been amazing. Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful, really making it easy to feel a part of the team. Although I was unsure of what to expect before starting at the firm, it's definitely not disappointed and I can't wait to see what else I can achieve over the next few years here.
