    As you're school age, you'll probably just be shadowing, with the possibility of getting involved in low-level clerical tasks. With any luck you'll get to accompany barristers to court. Be warned it might be pretty boring at times.

    Definitely formal business-style clothes.

    And make sure you wear long sleeves just in case you end up in court - I just finished a week with a criminal law chambers and spent the entire week clerking for a barrister in an attempted murder trial in the old bailey - it was great - saying that I'm a university student but you might be lucky and end up doing the same - I wore suits/smart clothes everyday.

    OP, you couldn't provide me with their name, could you?

    P.S. Yes yes yes, I know it's an old thread but i'm desperate

    Unlikely. I expect you need to be over 18 to involved in such things.

    I would expect it to be interesting and better than working at Selfridges. Just don't expect too much.

    The OP probably is over 18 by now...
