Pro Bono and Work Experience

Each of our campuses has an employability service, bringing together the expertise of our careers and Pro Bono teams, who are focused on helping you to achieve your career and work experience goals.

Our employability team can help you succeed by providing you with advice, opportunities to get practical experience and connect you to professionals in the industries you’re interest in.

Pro Bono

We run a large and varied legal Pro Bono programme, offering over 3,700 opportunities each year, to enable you to put the skills you’ve learnt into practice and gain the type of experience that employers value.

Examples of these Pro Bono opportunities include:

Legal advice centres

Participate in legal advice centres, answering legal enquiries from the general public. This casework programme gives you valuable first-hand experience of client relationships, legal research and drafting legal documents.

Public legal education programmes

The StreetLaw and public legal education programmes raise legal awareness in communities.

Shadowing opportunities

We organise a range of shadowing opportunities throughout the year to give students the opportunity to see and experience first-hand what it’s like to be a solicitor or judge.

Work Experience

The experience of working with real clients on a placement is invaluable. We work with employers to organise work experience opportunities nationally that could prove valuable in furthering your career.

Legal students - We can help you to get external placements in a range of not-for-profit organisations, providing members of the public with free legal advice and representation.
