Can You Succeed in Law Without Going to University?


Jon Gregson


Yes you can. Law has traditionally been seen as a career path only accessible via the conventional University route, but that is changing. In 2013 one of the most exciting and dynamic changes for our business wasn’t just a merger or new senior management but a new approach to recruitment with the appointment of the first Level 4 Legal Apprentice in the UK.

Having left school with three As at A-Level but not attracted to a typical undergraduate education, our apprentice Jordan, clearly had the intellectual ability to study law but needed the opportunity to decide whether practising the subject was right for him.

That opportunity provided itself through our training partner Damar Training and their quest to identify our potential apprentices.
