Blacks Solicitors currently offers 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 your CV and a covering letter (which must include the following information) via email to our Work Experience Coordinators, Ellie Stansfield and Jack Dodd:
- Please confirm whether you are currently at school/university/work and provide details
- Details of your last exam results
- Why you want to undertake the placement at Blacks
- What you will bring to Blacks during your placement
- What are your greatest achievements
- When you are available
Due to the high volume of applications we receive, all criteria must be met for a successful application.
We are fully booked for work experience placements in 2021. Applications are now open for January 2022 onwards.
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.
