Law isn't quite as glamorous as a lot of the TV shows make out, but it's definitely more interesting! During this free two week virtual work experience programme you will meet a range of industry professionals from various legal areas of law who will give you an overview of their experiences and you'll get the opportunity to ask a whole load of questions.
You will learn about some of the key roles and responsibilities of law practitioners throughout this programme, including legal research, advocacy & client communication, contractual interpretation and legal analysis & drafting. The programme will also include a vital pathways module, which will direct you on what to do next, how to apply, and what institutions you should be considering for your further study. There will also be a range of quizzes and meaningful activities to spark your interest in law as an industry and give you further insight into what it really means to work in the field.
Introduction to the Law Industry

Thank you for all your time and effort. The program was by far the best experience I’ve had virtually compared to other virtual experiences I’ve done. I liked the layout and the interactive activities, and I learnt a lot I didn’t know. I would definitely recommend this program to others; it was a great experience I would love to do it all again.
