Our annual work experience scheme is designed to provide candidates with a practical experience wtihin a law firm and offers an excellent first step in developing a career in law. We expect successful candidates to be ambitious, enthusiastic and driven.
How does the scheme work?
We offer up to 6 work experience placements during the summer months as part of our work experience scheme. Placements are offered in our York office and our Lincoln office.
Placements are 3 days in length and each day is spent in a different department where you will shadow, observe colleagues and be involved in current projects/tasks. The scheme is a great opportunity for you to establish connections with people who work at Langleys, obtain an insight into day-to-day life as a solicitor and confirm if a career in law is for you. We welcome applications from both law and non-law candidates however preference will be given to those who also apply for a training contract.

Application for the 2018 vacation scheme are now closed. Applications will re-open in November 2018 for the 2019 vacation scheme.
Applications are made via a CV and covering letter, along with a number of set questions which will be asked during the application.
Those applying or accepted on the work placement scheme should apply for a training contract to start approximately two years later than the work placement i.e. those who apply for a work placement in 2019 should apply for a training contract to commence in 2021.
