Unfortunately due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, we are currently unable to offer any placements at this time. We are hoping to be able to resume the scheme in July 2021 and have now re-opened applications for October 2021 onwards.
Blacks Solicitors currently offer week-long placements all year round to students looking to gain work experience in an award-winning, commercial law firm.
Sitting alongside fee-earners at all levels, successful applicants will typically experience both contentious and non-contentious work; giving a flavour of the day-to-day workings of a professional law firm.
Placements provide valuable experience for those looking to pursue a career in law and impressive candidates can potentially secure roles, and even careers, after attending our Placement Scheme.
If you would like to apply for the Scheme, please send a covering letter (which must include the following information) via email to our Work Experience Coordinators:
- Please confirm whether you are currently at school/university/work and provide details
- Details of your last exam results
- What interests you about Blacks
- What your ambitions are
- What you enjoy doing
- What are your strengths and weaknesses
- When you are available
Alternatively, for more information about Blacks’ Placement Scheme, please contact us via email.
Due to the popularity of this scheme (especially during school and university holidays), placements are limited and applications will be accepted at our discretion. Please also note that our placements are unpaid and we take bookings for placements at least six months in advance.
