SSLP offer week-long legal and court placement with inhouse lawyers


At SSLP we don't believe we should all be subject to a justice system that only a few of us are familiar with. So, every year we run a week long legal experience programme for people aged 18 and over to give insight and real front-line experience of the legal profession and justice system.

During the programme, you'll get to shadow qualified lawyers and be exposed to a variety of legal environments. To find out more about the programme click here.

This year we are offering the opportunity for three individuals during either the week of 8 - 12 September or the week of 27 - 31 October (school half term).

To cover your costs during the programme, we will reimburse £30 a week per person. We can also cover child care costs or any access costs incurred due to a disability - we will just need an explanation of what you need additional support for, and receipts for the costs incurred.

If you are interested in applying, please send us your CV and cover letter outlining a bit about yourself and why you would like to take part in the programme to stopandsearchlp@gmail.com. Please also specify which week you can do, or state both if so.
 
The deadline for applications is midnight on 19 August which we are taking now. Please make sure to let us know which week you'd prefer to complete the programme in your cover letter - September or October 2014.
 
Please note, this programme is not aimed at people studying or about to study a degree in law.
 
We will contact candidates for interviews by 22 August, which will take place week commencing 25 Aug. 
 
Please do get in touch if you have any further questions and please share this opportunity with friends and family you think may be interested!
