    If you want to do law you could apply to do work experience with a solicitor's firm via email or phone. Personally, I'm doing mine with my local MP where I'm basically helping out in his office and at times shadowing him.

    To be honest, any work experience is better than none. Even better (a bonus) if you find something related to what you want to do.

    Personally, I applied for work experience with my local MP by emailing him but it wasn't easy as I didn't get a response within 14 days, probably because he was extremely busy. I then tweeted him about it and reminded him one final time before I received an email back in January 2016. This could help you in terms of doing law.

    In terms of finding work experience for yourself, just find a local law firm or whatever place you want to do work experience and email them or phone them.
