There are a number of apprenticeships with major firms as an alternative. Look for Trailblazer apprenticeships as they will be to the highest level.

Many will tell you to do a degree and say it's the only way to have a successful career but this is not really the truth and times are changing. Apprenticeships in law are likely to be increasingly common with the development of the trailblazers and pressures on firms to take them on.

Plus many moons ago (although in my lifetime), many lawyers were trained without having a degree and many had very successful careers.

yes you can become a legal exec, wgere you work and study at the same time.

If you get A*A*A* then that would be fantastic and you cna always go to uni later after yoube seen a bit of life.

JS never heard of trailblazer. Will look it up.
