or do you have to study an admin qualification and do a work placement (as a legal administrator apprenticeship) and work your way up to become a solicitor that way? You can’t gain a PhD from an apprenticeship so I don’t see how this would be useful as you can only go up to level 7 and not level 8?

No.
Apprenticeships are full time. 80% working for a law firm and 20% studying. There are solicitor degree apprenticeships available.
see https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/en/car...pprenticeships

PhDs are not required to work as a solicitor.

It doesn't work like that.

Level 3 qualifications include qualifications like A levels and btecs. Level 6 are degrees, level 7 is postgraduate. You can do these in different subjects.

To become a solicitor you can undertake a law degree or you can do the degree apprenticeship with the Solicitors Qualifying Examinations

There are various route to being a paralegal. A degree isn't a requirement so there are level 3 routes. See https://nationalcareers.service.gov....iles/paralegal

A PhD is about a substantial piece of research that adds new knowledge to the world.
