Work Experience & Vacancies

Work Experience

We offer work experience packages available to students, undergraduates and post graduates of all ages. We aim to present a comprehensive introduction to our services, providing aspiring legal professionals with invaluable insights into the legal industry. Work experience with our teams is designed to expose individuals to the real-world operation of a law firm, helping them develop essential skills and knowledge to excel in their future careers. Students work across all four of our legal teams, working closely with our solicitors, attending court and learning from real professionals on real cases. Some of our work experience students have even gone on to have successful careers with us.

Our work experience packages are generally expected to take place over five days from Monday to Friday, however, we are able to create a flexible timetable tailored to your needs.

“My work experience... was fascinating, insightful and informative. Before my work experience, I was unaware of the scope and importance of the work that the legal services team engaged with... I would encourage anyone with legal aspirations... to engage with the council and participate in this work experience programme, which provides a unique and valuable insight into the world of law.” - Roan Sidhu, Law Student
