    I have been trying to find work experience and a law firm has finally accepted my request for a placement. However, the law firm is different compared to others because it specializes in intellectual property. I wanted to do work experience in a law firm with family law, but I guess experience is experience. Should I accept their offer for the work experience? I can do work experience next year when I am doing my A levels, but I know that you need to revise a lot for A levels. So I would rather do it when I am doing my GCSE's.

    If you're concerned about experience for applying to uni any experience will do if you sell it right. Not doing family law when you're, I'm guessing here, 16/17 is not going to stop you from becoming a family lawyer in 6 years (trainee) or 8 years (qualified)...

    Intellectual property is great btw. I'd take the offer.
    Thank you for your advice! I have decided to take the offer.
