• The University of Law welcomes role in developing legal apprenticeships 

    4 March 2014

    The University of Law (ULaw) has welcomed the decision by the Government to launch Legal Apprenticeships as part of the Trailblazer apprenticeship scheme which was announced by The Rt. Hon David Cameron MP in a speech today.

    The initiative will offer individuals who are looking to pursue a future in the legal services sector a new career pathway. ULaw will help develop the initiative and work with legal employers to extend the routes available to gain professional legal qualifications in the workplace. 

    John Latham, Provost and CEO of the University of Law said: “The second phase of Trailblazer and our close involvement with it underlines our strategy of diversity and inclusivity by expanding our modes of delivery and we’ll continue to deliver our exceptional training standards through the apprenticeship scheme. 

    “ULaw is constantly innovating to provide new ways of serving the industry which we are proud to serve. We are looking forward to working on this new initiative.” 

    Matthew Hancock, Skills and Enterprise Minister said: “National Apprenticeship Week is designed to celebrate Apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.  

    “We want to see Apprenticeships become the new norm for all ambitious young people, and employers who are dedicated to growing their own talent and increasing the skills base of the nation.”
