    Im 17 and wish to obtain work experience in relation to law. Could someone direct me to any places located in and around London which is relevant to the field of law please?

    Maybe make a list of law firms in and around London, check their websites for work placements/internships and then phone them direct.

    Don't bother with commercial firms in the City, unless its through a school student programme or you have a direct connection. City firms will not offer ad hoc experience to the majority of school students.

    You are better off contacting smaller "high street" or boutique firms. Send your CV and
    a covering letter, explaining your enthusiasm and what you hope to gain. If you have connections (relatives or friends who are or know lawyers) make sure to use them.
