Work Experience Placement Programme

Experience what it is really like to work for a busy, vibrant law firm

We offer three work experience placements to students each year, for either a one week or a two week period.  Our innovative work experience programme offers students a structured programme of activity providing a broad range of experiences. 

Rather than simply observing solicitors at work or worse, spending the week filing and making tea*, you will be given a series of case studies to complete which allows you to build up a portfolio of work to take away with you.  A case study may include drafting a will, going to court or attending an employment tribunal – providing real, practical, hands on experience.

Applications for work experience should be sent to Jo Hepplewhite, together with a C.V. and dates available for work experience. We prioritise students studying law and, unfortunately, we are unable to accept students below the age of 17, given restrictions made by the courts. 

*some tea making may be required!
