If you’re coming to the end of your A-levels and are considering law as a future profession, it would be a great idea to gain some real work experience to make doubly sure that this is the route you want to take when it comes to applying to study law at degree level, right?
Sadly, due to a wide range of legal issues and implications surrounding the subject of client data and your lack of experience, it’s highly unlikely that you’re going to get the legal work experience you’ve been looking for to see if law school is the right career avenue for you.
So how am I supposed to know if it’s the right choice if I can’t get any experience?
Unfortunately, you find yourself in a really tricky situation. On the one hand, no legal services provider will offer you any work experience as you’ve never been in that kind of setting before, but as no one will give you the chance to join them for a few days you just find yourself going around in circles!
As frustrating as this situation is, there is another way to gain some real insight into the legal profession without constantly hitting a brick wall every time you approach a business in the hope they might give you a few days’ work experience.
How about the opportunity to be a lawyer for a day?
