Work shadowing - one day, unpaid: 2nd year law students

Students can apply to spend a day in one of our offices work shadowing a trainee solicitor or solicitor to get an insight into the legal profession from the point of view of a large commercial firm.

This is an ideal opportunity to see how the firm works and the type of work that a Shepherd and Wedderburn trainee gets involved with. Once you have completed your work shadowing day, we hope that you will decide to apply for our summer internship or traineeship.

When to apply

Work shadowing days will take place between January - May 2022. Depending on the government restrictions in relations to social distancing, this may be delivered virtually. If you would like to apply please email your CV and covering letter to Please note spaces are limited so will be given on a first come first served basis.

Applications for a Work Shadow Day close at noon on 31st December 2021.
