Work Experience & Training Contracts

Work experience for students

Unfortunately we only have limited resources to offer work experience and we have decided that we will offer the limited number of places to university Law degree students, rather than school students, because:

  • undergraduates need the experience as part of their training regime
  • they understand the matters they work with because of their studies
  • clients can accept an undergraduate sitting in on a meeting but are less comfortable with a school student
  • some of our cases can be upsetting e.g. child care matters
  • undergraduates are more likely to work unsupervised
  • it is an opportunity for us to spot undergraduates who may progress with the firm and gain a training contract

We are sorry that we cannot help school aged students with work experience.

If you are an under-graduate, or post graduate, and you are interested in work experience (usually one or two weeks in the summer) please send your CV with a covering letter to our Office Manager, Alistair Williams.

Training Contracts

At any time we usually have two or three trainees that we support at Crane & Staples.

If you are interested in a training contract you should send your CV with a covering letter to our Office Manager, Alistair Williams.
