You will learn about some of the key roles and responsibilities of Law practitioners throughout this programme, including legal research, advocacy & client communication, contractual interpretation and legal analysis & drafting. The programme will also include a vital pathways module, which will direct you on what to do next, how to apply, and what institutions you should be considering for your further study.

The virtual work experience programme involves around 10 hours of activity. You can complete the work over 2 weeks, meaning you can fit it around your schedule (whether that be school or college). There are live webinars to get involved in, but if you’re unable to attend these you can watch recordings on-demand.
The programme will take place between 6th April 2021 and 16th February 2021. You do not need to be available full time during those dates, but you do need to be able to complete 10 hours worth of activity over the two weeks.
