Legal, finance and accounting
Law has been taught at Coventry University for nearly fifty years and we pride ourselves on the good relationship we have with our students and on providing friendly, accessible staff who will support and guide them through their studies.
Students have access to a model courtroom, which provides them with the opportunity to experience a modern courtroom within the academic environment.
We offer apprenticeships in a variety of legal, finance and accountancy disciplines and specialisms:
The Chartered Legal Executive Degree Apprenticeship equips apprentices to provide legal services to internal and external clients. Typical activities that will be carried out are: taking client instructions, managing the inception, progression and completion of client matter, communication (written and oral) with internal and external clients, drafting and producing legal documents, conducting and applying legal research, negotiating on behalf of clients and representing clients in informal and formal proceeding, making decisions in legal matters based on legal principles or the rule of law and within all legal and regulatory requirements.
Financial advisers provide their clients with specialist advice on how to manage their money. They may be employed in large companies such as banks or within small specialist advice businesses. Financial advisers operate in a highly regulated environment and in order to give financial advice, they must have professional qualifications and demonstrate a high degree of integrity, adherence to a code of ethics and be committed to maintaining their professional development and knowledge.
Senior Compliance/Risk Specialists provide proactive support and guidance to the business areas to ensure that the organisation meets the wide range of compliance and risk requirements set out in legislation e.g. data security, or required by regulators e.g. financial crime, operational risk, balanced against achieving appropriate customer outcomes.
