Welcoming Datalaw as the latest BLS sponsor

We are pleased to announce that Datalaw has become a new proud sponsor of the Birmingham Law Society.

As an established training provider that has worked with over 27,000 trusted solicitors and holds 25 years of experience in the legal field, it is ensured that Datalaw’s law apprenticeships and continuous professional development (CPD) courses not only meet but exceed the expectations of today’s dynamic legal environment.

What is Datalaw’s specialty?

Datalaw provides professional legal CPD training and 95% government funded law apprenticeship programs. This includes the SRA approved government funded solicitor apprenticeship which enables your practice to get your new and existing employees from graduate to solicitor via the government funded Solicitor Apprenticeship Scheme. This Scheme covers all their training and examinations via the new qualification route: the SQE (The Solicitor Qualifying Examination).

The benefits of Datalaw’s solicitor apprenticeship include:

● Approved by the SRA
● Zero fees for learners
● 95% funded for organisations
● Assists firms in retaining and attracting legal talent

Additionally, Datalaw also offers the Level 3 Paralegal Apprenticeship which has been created to train those in a legal support staff role to become qualified paralegals and fee-earners. Alongside this, candidates will also become nationally recognised paralegal with the National Association of Licensed Paralegals (NALP) which will enable them to undertake billable tasks.

However, Datalaw is most known for its expansive legal CPD library that holds over 800 legal CPD courses in over 45 areas of law. These courses encompass a wide range of topics meticulously designed to meet the diverse needs of professionals across the legal sector, from practising solicitors to firm managers.

With a network of legal experts and speakers, Datalaw ensures that each course is both informative and engaging, providing legal practitioners with the essential knowledge and updates they require to excel in their fields. Whether you’re looking to deepen your expertise or stay updated on the latest legal developments, Datalaw’s CPD courses & memberships can help you stay on track with your professional development and training.

How to claim apprenticeship funding through Datalaw?

As an approved training provider by the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), Datalaw can provide the training and claim this funding directly from the government on your practice’s behalf.

This is achievable because the ESFA have set aside government funding in the form of the apprenticeship levy which helps organisations train their professionals within work to increase talent acquisition and career progression.
