What is the legal services T-Level course?

T-levels are new, two-year technical study programmes that are designed for employers. The Law T-Level aims to combine academic study with legal work experience to equip students with the key skills needed to gain a legal apprenticeship, work within the legal sector or study law at a degree level at university.

You will complete a Level 3 Technical Qualification in Legal Services with a specialism in Crime, Criminal Justice and Social Welfare. The course will develop your knowledge of key legal principles and of policies and systems required when working in the legal workplace such as using case management software and client confidentiality. The course also gives you an understanding of the criminal procedure and possesses and of social welfare legislation and services such as social benefits and housing.

You will also be required to complete an industrial placement of at least 315 hours (45 days). This will provide you with an invaluable insight into the demands of working within the legal sector and professional skills such as legal letter writing, confidentiality and dealing with clients. You will also gain essential skills transferrable to any chosen route after college.
