Work Experience

Looking to see what it is like to work in a law firm?

We offer up to 12 work experience placements in total each year. Placements can take place in our Leeds, Bradford or Huddersfield office, and each placement will last for one week. You would be based in one department and work mainly with that department, but opportunities often arise to work with other teams as well. Generally, placements would take place between the beginning of June and the end of September each year although we are occasionally able to accommodate requests for placements at other times of the year.

Who can apply?

Due to the high demand for placements we are unfortunately unable to accept applications from anyone who is still at school, or who is only in their first year of a degree course.  If you are in the second year of a degree course, or at any later stage in your education, we would welcome your application.

When to apply

Please visit our applications portal between 1 January and 28 February in the year you wish to undertake the placement and provide the details listed below under “How to Apply”.

How to apply

If you are interested in a work experience placement with the firm, please visit our applications portal, providing the following details:

  • A copy of your current CV
  • Which of our offices you would prefer any placement to take place in (although please note we are not always able to accommodate such preferences)
  • Your availability between June and September (inclusive) in the year you are applying in

Please note that if you wish to also apply for a training contract this is a separate process, and you will need to complete a separate application. Please refer to our Training Contracts Page

When will I know if I have been successful?

We will consider all applications together during early March and you will receive an email before the end of March confirming whether or not you have been successful with your application.
