"If I was asked 10 years ago when I left university about where I thought I would be at this point of my life, I never would have guessed that I would be living in Leeds and training to be a solicitor. I’m proud to be part of the apprenticeship scheme, and think it’s important that people are aware that there are many ways to qualify as a lawyer and that there’s likely to be a scheme that can work for you."
