    I'm considering doing Law at university, I may want to do property law, however I'm still undecided on what I want to specialise in. Therefore I want some work experience, so it'd be great if anyone could give me some advice. Maybe if you're currently studying law, a graduate or if you've got any work experience with law.
    Thanks

    High Street firm is the obvious way to go. Most of them from experience are happy to let school students study them for a while, and not many people will apply to university with anything higher up the chain than High Street given City firms only really give work experience to undergraduates. Email a few local firms and ask them if they'd be happy to have you for a few days/ a week.

    One thing to be wary of perhaps is the 'I want to be a property lawyer' line. By the time you start studying law and then start experiencing it from a work perspective what you want to do may change considerably, as at the moment you probably have very little to base that viewpoint on. Sometimes you see people writing on personal statements etc. that they want to be a tax lawyer or a Medical lawyer but I think to make such a determination having not studied law at all is not perhaps the best approach.
    Thank you for this, really helped!
    Oh okay, but then with certain university courses, you can do specified laws, so do you advise that I do law as a general degree?
