There’s no doubt about it, if you’re going to make an impact in the legal profession you’ll need good grades at every stage of your academic career. But what’s also important is work experience so you can get a thorough working knowledge of working practices, processes and a solid commercial awareness of why legal service providers exist in the first place.

If you’re looking to embark on your next phase on your journey towards your dream legal career, you’ll no doubt be one of the thousands of potential students seeking to go to one of the many law schools dotted around at Universities all over the UK.

But with fierce competition for every single place on each law degree course, having a little experience on your side can help you outshine the other potential candidates vying for your spot in the lecture hall.

However, with so many legal implications when it comes to taking on work experience students and the whole data protection act to consider, may legal firms are wary of letting students any further than the office meeting room, never mind giving them access to confidential personal data!

So how exactly are you supposed to overcome this potential stumbling block?

UniLaw has created a unique one-day intensive workshop to help would-be law degree students get a real taste of being a lawyer for the day.
