School leaver opportunities

Mayer Brown do not currently offer a School Leaver Programme.


The legal apprenticeship is a great alternative for those wishing to pursue a career in the legal profession, without the financial burden incurred by fees and student loans. Participants join the firm’s London office and complete a comprehensive induction programme alongside Mayer Brown’s trainee intake. Successful applicants will begin their apprenticeship in Business Services departments (such as Risk & Compliance and the Information Centre) to develop their knowledge of how the firm operates as a business, their understanding of firm systems, and to build lasting connections with key colleagues. This learning and experience is fundamental before being transferred into one of our legal practices. By the end of the programme, participants will have the same level of qualification as trainee solicitors who qualify through the traditional route.

Salary & benefits

£25,000 starting.


AAB at A Level (or equivalent). School leavers who wish to pursue an alternative route to qualification as a solicitor rather than attending a full-time university course.
