Summer work experience scheme

We run summer work experience schemes for penultimate year law and non-law students every year. If you are on a four-year course and will be spending your third year overseas, you are welcome to apply in your second or third year. 

WHEN TO APPLY

Applications for work experience should be made through our online application system*. You will be asked to complete a short form and attach a copy of your covering letter and CV – this should include a full percentage breakdown of all examination results.

Interviews for places on the summer work experience schemes will take place in London and, where possible, on campus. If you are spending your third year overseas, we are happy to conduct your interview by telephone.

The interview will be conducted by a partner and an associate and will last for approximately 45 minutes. They will engage you in a discussion about your CV and on a short current affairs article, which you will be given to read before the interview.
