Work experience

We offer a number of work experience opportunities in London for students at school or university.

​School-age students

Work experience in our London office is delivered through the Smart Start programme. For more information about Smart Start and how to apply click here.

We also are a founder member of the Pathways to Law Programme and participate in their programme offering work experience to state school students who are interested in law and who will be the first from their family to university.

Students at university

If you are at university and looking for work experience prior to applying to us for a training contract, you should look at our Careers website for further details about your eligibility and how to apply.

We run a number of open days throughout the year for people from all degree disciplines and year groups. Our summer and winter vacation programmes are tailored primarily to penultimate year undergraduates and finalists. Open day and vacation programme places are highly competitive so it is important to make the application in advance of advertised deadlines.

We also run a programme for law students from the following universities: Brunel University, City University, University of East London, Greenwich, Queen Mary's University and University of Westminster. This opportunity is offered to the top performing first year students at these universities and individuals are recommended by their law faculty.

We wish you all the luck in finding work experience which we hope will give you real insight into the world of work, whether as a lawyer or in another chosen career path.
