Legal apprentices

Thank you to those of you that applied for our 2017 Apprenticeship Scheme. Applications for 2017 are now closed, but please keep an eye on our website from October 2017 when applications for our 2018 Apprenticeship Scheme open.

Our paralegal apprenticeships are designed to help springboard you into a successful career in the legal world. If you are an A Level leaver or equivalent, you'll have the opportunity to join our firm as a legal apprentice.

An apprenticeship with Kennedys will teach you the skills you will need to work in a legal environment. You'll be helping our lawyers with their caseload and we'll be helping you to build your legal knowledge.

Legal apprenticeships are available in our offices in London, Chelmsford, Cambridge, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Taunton.

Paralegal apprenticeship scheme

We're proud to be a government accredited trailblazer organisation and we've also been shortlisted in the Top 50 of The Top Apprenticeship Careers List 2015, in partnership with The Telegraph.

We are now offering the new paralegal apprenticeship scheme (GOV.UK), which started in September 2016. This apprenticeship is designed to offer an introduction into law. It will combine learning and working within one of our legal teams and you will finish the two-year apprenticeship with a paralegal qualification.

Once the two-year apprenticeship has finished, there may be an opportunity to join a further apprenticeship scheme in law to continue your professional development and training.


We have opportunities for apprentices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Chelmsford, London, Manchester, Sheffield and Taunton.
