Withers will recruit four apprentices to work within its employment, litigation and real estate departments, with the school leavers working towards becoming CILEx-qualified lawyers.
The four will take the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services taught by CILEx Law School.
Withers HR director Simon Luckett said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this scheme, which is ideal for bright A level students who are motivated to pursue a legal career which would otherwise have been denied them because of the cost of university education.
“This scheme makes an important contribution to the firm’s other social mobility programmes and will help to dispel common myths about the obstacles to seeking a career in law.”
CILEx Law School business director Jenny Pelling added that Withers’ adoption of apprenticeships showed the route’s potential for aspiring young lawyers.
Withers joins a host of firms which offer the Level 3 apprenticeship, such as Clyde & Co, DAC Beachcroft and Thomas Eggar.
