At Verisona Law we are happy to provide work experience opportunities to students looking for a practical insight into life at an innovative law firm. We make a limited number of one week unpaid work experience placements available to those undergraduate and graduate students who are actively seeking a career in law, or to applicants who are seeking a change in career.
Our placements are offered in June/July in a broad range of our legal departments for the duration of one week. The placement could be entirely based at either of our offices, or split between the two sites, depending on which departments are involved in the placement, and will generally involve shadowing a member of our team. This may include seeing clients (with their consent); undertaking research or drafting responses; and may also involve some routine office administration which is very much part and parcel of working in a law firm.

“If it had not been for the EPA I would have had real problems even discussing my mother’s affairs with banks, investment companies, government departments and care providers, much less paying her bills from her account.
"Your help in pursuing and fighting my case is greatly appreciated, not by just myself but my whole family. Only through the progression of the case have I found it easier to talk about it and this has helped deal with something I had locked away since the day I left the school. It has allowed me to talk about my experiences far more openly and without the stigma of shame I had felt for so long.
Once again thank you sincerely for your time and patience in dealing with my case."
