Legal Officer

Nationwide & overseas
£42,009 after training with regular pay rises

No dreary office. No billable hours. No timesheets or targets. As a Legal Officer, you can focus on practicing your profession while doing something that really matters: helping people who need it most and making the world a safer place.

The legal work you’ll take on is unmatched by civilian life. You won’t be stuck on repetitive cases; instead, we’ll stretch your mind and test your mettle with new and varied legal challenges over a range of specialisms. From prosecuting soldiers charged with offences at court martial to advising senior commanders on the rules of engagement abroad, you’ll bring together brains and brawn to help us move forward. You’ll travel around the globe, take on challenging work and give legal advice to people who desperately need it. You’ll also train and advise officers from across the Army on military law, discipline and administrative action.


As a qualified solicitor, barrister or advocate, you have the skills and knowledge your Army needs. We give you the chance to take those skills further, being part of something that’s bigger than you and has an impact that stretches around the world. From the moment you join the Army, you’ll be set on a clear path for promotion and progression, receiving all the support and opportunity you need to rise through the ranks and unleash your potential.

But we’ll also prepare you for a life outside of the Army by providing you with opportunities to get qualifications that are recognised by civilian employers. Upon completion of your training, we’ll give you the option to obtain your Higher Rights of Audience (Criminal Courts) whilst prosecuting at SPA LLM. We can also help you obtain post-graduate qualifications.

It doesn’t stop there. You’ll get the best military and professional training there is. As well as learning basic soldiering, you’ll learn the specialist skills you need to become an expert in your role. With Army Officer training, we’ll help you to become the best you can be.


Become an Army Legal Officer and you’ll:
- Earn a starting salary upwards of £42,009
- Enjoy 38 days of paid annual leave
- Receive subsided accommodation and facilities, increasing your disposable income
- Receive free medical and dental health cover
- Have continuous access to promotional opportunity
- Be sponsored to earn valuable civilian-recognised qualifications
- Take part in Adventurous Training and be able to play your favourite sports
- Have access to free sports and gym facilities
