    I am determined to become a Solicitor, preferably in Family Law. I am at the point now where I am deciding whether or not I go to University or do an Apprenticeship. I want to go to University to experience University and gain the degree but I also want to do an Apprenticeship because I don't want the student debt, I can still get the degree with Damar Training, I can get MORE hands on experience and I can also get paid. But I am still undecided. Any advice from your personal experiences?

    Hi Chloe!

    Apprenticeships for law are growing all the time now, with many huge law firms offering them. They are definitely something to consider! We are actually hosting a Law Apprenticeship event in London in March, where you can find out more about the different options and how to get on one - and it's completely FREE! You can book tickets here.

    If you would like a little more more information about law apprenticeships, we have a free guide on our Law Apprenticeships page. We also have a free quiz - Is a Law Apprenticeship Right for Me Quiz.

    I hope these help!
