What is the Trailblazer in Law?

The Trailblazer Apprenticeship in Law is an employer-led initiative, supported by Government, which has seen a number of UK law firms and in-house teams develop three new apprenticeships for the legal sector. These are solicitor, Chartered Legal Executive and paralegal and meet the standards specified by ILEX Professional Standards Limited (IPS) and the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) for qualification as a Chartered Legal Executive or Solicitor.

More details on the three standards can be found at
