Our two week summer Legal Work Placement scheme is a great way to get an insight into what life is really like at Irwin Mitchell.

You can choose to apply to either business legal services or personal legal services, and spend time with two different departments within your chosen area to get a true insight and a real feel for what each stream is like. You’ll gain first-hand experience of our culture, the work we do and the wide range of opportunities we have to offer.

You’ll experience an induction, social activities, breakfast meetings, and have the opportunity to get involved with community and sports activities.

The Legal Work Placement plays an important part in our trainee recruitment strategy. It’s a great way not just for you to showcase your skills in a practical environment and to leave a positive and lasting impression, but also for us as a firm, to give you a glimpse into what life is like in our passionate environment.


Anyone who completes a Legal Work Placement with us is automatically considered for a training contract. A large proportion of our training contracts are awarded this way every year, so we encourage anyone interested in joining us on a training contract to come to one of our events in the first instance and then to apply via the Legal Work Placement route.
