Teachers’ Guide – Law Work Experience

Are you a school teacher wanting to know more about law work experience opportunities for school age children? This page aims to provide a breakdown of the different types of experience available to this age group along with advice on how students can get involved.

Deciding to study and practice law is not a decision that should be taken lightly. With around six years of intensive study and practical legal training, it’s vital that students make the right decisions early on, rather than rushing into something which they later come to regret.

You might want to suggest to your students, therefore, that before they commit to studying and pursuing a career in law, they try to undertake some legal work experience. Such experience will help them to make informed decisions about their future and whether a career in law is right for them.

Structured law work experience opportunities for school age children are unfortunately are few and far between. This does not mean, however, that students at this level will be unable to gain experience, they just need to be a little bit more creative!
