Law Placements: For employers

Student placements give you the chance to get an employee who will be enthusiastic and up-to-date with the latest skills and knowledge.

Our students can offer your company an extra pair of hands - to help on a specific project or in an area where you may be short staffed. You can offer them the chance to use their skills in a real-life environment and can really contribute to their learning.

Placement Opportunities

The following course offers an 18 week placement in year 3 (over the Summer):

Duration and Cost

While working for you, the student is covered by your insurance policies and will be required to adhere to all your company's policies and procedures, including Health & Safety. Therefore, the University will ask about your insurance and Health & Safety policies before the placement is agreed.

The Placement Office will send you a selection of CVs and covering letters to choose from. After this the process normally follows the employer's usual application and interview procedures.

Further information on payment and costs is available on request.
