Work Experience Programme

Our Work Experience programme is aimed at undergraduates or those with an equivalent level of education or experience.

We offer two separate weeks each year, one during early summer and one in late summer.

The application process for work experience for 2019 has now closed.  We are unable to accept any further applications at this time.

Feedback from students who have joined us in previous years includes:

“I found the week to be insightful and very enjoyable”.

“I think the level of effort put into the week from everyone at the firm was excellent and I feel I have come away with a very valuable experience”.

“Showed me how law works in practice, invaluable experience, very different to sitting in a lecture room listening about it”.

“The work experience programme was absolutely fantastic. I found it very interesting and was surprised at how much I’ve learnt. I have a real feel for the workings of a firm and thoroughly enjoyed every stage. The structure of the programme is so different to other schemes. All staff were extremely helpful. Thank you.”
