Student work experience

Please note that we do not have the staff resources to support students wishing to spend time here on work experience, and the nature of our work makes it difficult for us to permit non-staff to have access to our office systems. To be fair to everyone, we can therefore not assist with any such requests. Some alternative work experience suggestions for those interested in a career in law can be found in our FAQs section.
