    I used to work in a law firm in the Midlands. But your best bet would be to look at smaller firms, because otherwise it all needs to go through HR and security checks and most firms can't be bothered to do that if you aren't making money for them.

    I had to have 5 different security checks and sign some legal documents before I could even log on to a computer. Unless you have a contact smaller firms would be your best bet as they don't have such high profile clients.

    If you want the work experience then it is worth it. But the likely hood of actually getting to that point in a large firm is near impossible. Most will simply ignore your email or say they aren't doing work experience at this time.
