    Hello all!

    What are the prospects of doing a Mini-pupillage with a barristers chamber, or a vacation programme with a solicitors' firm as a study abroad student. This means being in the UK for only a couple of months.

    Are there any opportunities for these, or these programmes the exclusive domain of local LL.B. students?

    Cheers,
    Thanks for any answers!

    You can but ask. I've managed to secure three months with Linklaters in Moscow for my year abroad next year. All you can do is email the local office and see what they say. It probably helps if you have a contact within the firm.

    Thanks for the reply. I realised though, as a student visitor (<6 months), my visa doesn't allow me to do any work, even if it is as an intern and unpaid. So i guess there is now ay around that.
