Work Experience

SVS Solicitors offers a number of unpaid work experience placements throughout the year giving students an insight into life in a busy criminal defence firm.

Each work experience placement is different, but all of our placements are designed to give students the opportunity to make the most of their time at SVS. During a work experience placement, you will meet people at all levels within the firm and gain real hands-on experience by sampling lots of different aspects of the role of a lawyer, including (but not limited to):

  • Attending court and meetings with clients and counsel;
  • Legal research tasks;
  • Drafting documents;
  • Shadowing qualified lawyers; and
  • General legal admin such as bundling.
