Work Experience Placements For Year 10 And Above Pupils

We are pleased to be able to offer two work experience placements of up to two weeks in duration to school age pupils (Year 10 and above) each academic year. Placements will usually take place in July each year.

Our work experience placements are an opportunity to experience working in a firm of solicitors and to learn about the different job roles available. The work experience will consist of admin work together with some fee earner work shadowing. The work experience provided will be as broad as possible and will be designed to enable you to see first-hand what happens in a typical day working in a law firm.
