Our Student Placement Programme provides students with an opportunity to gain practical work experience and apply the legal knowledge that has already been acquired in the early years of their undergraduate degree.
Students on our Placement Programme are generally in the penultimate year of their undergraduate degree. As a placement student, you are assigned to a legal team with a partner, associate and trainee solicitor buddy who will support you to grow and excel throughout your career at ALG. You can expect to receive formal and informal feedback and mentoring throughout your placement.
You will also participate in formal training sessions which, along with your on the job experience, help you to develop your legal, business, people and communication skills. Training is interactive where practical and includes weekly lectures, workshops and team meetings.
All placement students are given the opportunity to interview for our Trainee Solicitor Programme. Placement duration varies, depending on the course and university.
Our Student Placement Programme is open to all undergraduate students who are attending a course that offers an integrated work placement programme.
Students can apply through their university by contacting their placement officer.
