    I'm a Year 12 student currently trying to get work experience at a solicitors firm. I live in the North so it'd be amazing if I could get a placement in a big firm from Leeds or Manchester, but I'm aware of how difficult it is just to get a high-street solicitor to take you on.
    Anybody else in the same boat? Any advice from someone who's already done it?
    If anyone knows about work experience schemes or the likes from firms please let me know.

    You need to make a good application and send out as many as you can i.e it requires work. they will be inundated, so dont just apply to big firms. Any legal experience in advice giving places is good. Get your careers teacher to check.
