Gordons LLP

Gordons is one of Yorkshire's leading independent law firms, with offices in Leeds & Bradford.

We provide a broad range of legal services to both businesses and individuals.

Our apprenticeship was the first of its kind in the legal sector and has won many awards.


Each year we aim to take on up to 4 apprentices. You work full time and study for CILEx Examinations (Chartered Institute of Legal Executive Lawyers) which, on average, take 4 years of part-time study, attending a day/evening class per week or by distance learning. Exams are held twice per year.

  • Stage 1: Years 1 & 2 – Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice
  • Stage 2: Years 3 & 4 – Level 6 Professional Higher Diploma in Law and Practice
On completion of both stages you will be required to undertake a further period of employment of one year before becoming a legal executive lawyer.

There are opportunities to specialise in corporate, commercial, dispute resolution, commercial property, employment, personal law or conveyancing.
