Work Experience

DMH Stallard makes a limited number of one week unpaid work experience placements available for undergraduate and postgraduate students wishing to gain practical experience of working in a law firm. This is aimed at students who have not yet gained a training contract, and wish to gain an insight into life at DMH Stallard.

At the current time the work experience scheme is separate from the selection process for the Training Contracts.  The aim of our work experience programme is to enable people, at any stage during their legal education, to experience a slice of life in a Law Firm.

Please note we do not arrange work experience during the Christmas and Easter holidays.

The work experience programme runs from the beginning of June until the end of August. You will be able to apply for a placement for summer 2020 from 1 October 2019 until 31 January 2020.

I wish you every success in securing a work experience placement in the near future. 

Please note: If you have applied for a placement for Summer 2019 we will be in touch in March/April to confirm the outcome of your application.

If you have any queries please email or call 01293 605067.
