So I'm starting work experience next year in July I've emailed up to 15 solicitors and none have got back to me! When I go to their firm in person they say they're not undertaking any placements or emailing will be better, I'm fed up! Also I love my tech and mobiles so I was thinking of doing at EE but do you think that will be good? I'm debating because after I leave school I'm worried working at EE won't help me get a good job as it's not an ideal work experience or is it? I don't even know why I want to do law I'm so so confused with my life right now

1) You have loads of time. Most companies probably can't offer you an informal work experience 6 months I advance because they don't know what they'll be doing then - the person who gives you the work experience may not even be in the same job by then.
2) How long is it for? Is it just a week like most schools or more formal?

If you are state school educated, look for firms who support the Prime initiative - http://primecommitment.org/.
Also use your own networks. Someone you know will have used a high street solicitor at some point. See if they can contact you to a solicitor - and contact them about 8-10 weeks before the work experience is due to begin. As someone else said, it's far too early for most people to consider an informal placement.
