Graduates and students
At Cripps, we understand the importance of investing in our junior lawyers and business professionals. That’s why we have programmes to suit everyone.
Careers in law
Pick the right path for you.
The pathways into a legal career have expanded greatly in recent times, opening up the legal sector to a wide variety of people who previously wouldn’t have considered a career in law.
At Cripps, we offer a traditional training contract programme for law and non-law graduates, with a Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) programme starting in September 2024.
We also offer legal apprenticeships for candidates with A levels or equivalent qualifications.
Both programmes, delivered in conjunction with BPP University, offer fantastic supervision and dedicated training and development. They cover the legal technical skills as well as the soft skills needed for you to succeed as a lawyer.
Need a summer challenge?
Our vacation scheme for undergraduates considering a career in law is a great way to find out how a law firm works. Placements are offered in our Tunbridge Wells office and provide the chance to work with teams across the firm over a two-week period.
Business professional careers
We offer business apprenticeships designed for you. Our various programmes allow you to develop vital business knowledge and learn a range of skills that will serve you throughout your professional career.
These programmes are delivered in conjunction with a respected educational establishment, which will differ depending on the programme.
