    Last year around Christmas time I had a week of work experience with a small city based law firm. It was such an amazing experience and deffinetely assured me that Law is the path I want to go down.


    Do you think it is rude of me to email him and ask him for another short placement?


    How would I go about it because he might not remember me!

    Thanks

    Hmmm I guess you could try. No harm in trying.

    It's not rude at all. If you were aware of any difficulties you created last time, or pressures in the office at that time, then you can say that you are aware of them, but otherwise, just ask, explaining why you want to work there again. They were prepared to give you work experience once, no reason why they won't consider it again.

    Nope, not rude. Unless you didn't say thank you last time, or something.

    Most solicitors have excellent memories because they need to recall names, facts and legal points at short and long range (think how it would look if your client John Smith rang up after 9 months and you didn't know who he was!). So he probably will remember you.
