Blacks Placement
The Blacks 4hr call back promise

Interested in a week-long placement at Blacks?

Do you want to see what professional life is like in a leading Leeds commercial law firm?

At Blacks we operate a work placement scheme, all year round, within various departments throughout the firm. These placements give successful applicants a flavour of the day-to-day workings of a commercial law firm and provide a valuable experience for those looking to pursue a career in law.  Successful applicants will typically experience both contentious and non-contentious work, sitting alongside fee-earners at all levels. At Blacks we begin the recruitment process from work experience and impressive candidates can potentially secure roles and even careers, as a result of our placement scheme.

If you would like to apply for the Blacks Placement Scheme, please send:

- Your current CV; and 

- A covering email (which must explain why you would like to visit Blacks and provide the provisional dates when you would be available to attend a placement) to our work experience coordinator, David Ward (

Please note that due to the popularity of this scheme (especially during school and university holidays), placements are limited and applications will be accepted in our absolute discretion. Please note that our placements are unpaid.

Good luck!

David Ward

Please note that we are no longer accepting applications for January - August 2018. All applications received from 01 January 2018 shall be considered for September 2018 - December 2018.
