Starting Your Journey - Legal Apprentices

"Earn and Learn" alongside some of the best legal minds in the business with our ambitious 2 year Paralegal Apprenticeship which carries with it the opportunity to progress to a further 5 year (degree incorporating) Solicitor Apprenticeship at our London office.

This groundbreaking programme was one of the first to launch in September 2016. Our first two apprentices have now completed their Paralegal Apprenticeship to transition to the Solicitor Apprenticeship; and several new apprentices will start their Paralegal Apprenticeships in September 2018.

Starting September 2020, Jones Day will offer further fantastic opportunities for two ambitious and high achieving candidates (AAB at A level or equivalent) who do not want to go to university or worry about student debt; but still want to start a career in law and have the chance to go on and obtain an LLB law degree and qualify as a solicitor.

This is your invitation to begin shaping your career at our unique international law firm.

A word from our partner in charge of apprentices:

 Adam Brown 

Jones Day’s Legal Apprenticeship is an opportunity for ambitious hard-working people, who don’t want to go to university, to join the legal profession. Through this programme we hope to increase the number of routes people can take to embark on a career in law. All of our apprentices will have the chance to go on and obtain an LLB law degree and qualify as a solicitor whilst earning a salary and avoiding the debt now associated with university. At Jones Day we aim to nurture talent and we hope that one day some of our apprentices will go on to become partners of the Firm.
