Theoretical knowledge gained during school, college or university is invaluable but what is day-to-day life actually like in the legal sector?

“…this week has helped me with my career plans and will benefit me a lot as it has provided me with the skills necessary to work in this environment.”
We believe that work experience can help you in the following ways:
Many people are unsure about which career path is right for them however, work experience gives you an opportunity to consider different sectors that appeal to you before making any long-term commitments. At Plexus, we have opportunities to work alongside legal Fee Earners within our various support teams to give you a taste of what working for a busy law firm really entails.
Enhance your skill set
Whether you choose to spend a day or a week with us, you’ll increase your confidence as well as build transferable skills which are so important to employers. From reviewing court documents to attending a ‘mock’ trial performed for our clients by our own employees, we ensure that your time with us is as informative and as interactive as we can make it.
Stand out from the crowd
In a competitive world, work experience is a great way to enhance your employability and to demonstrate to future employers that you have skills that go beyond those of a traditional academic classroom, making sure you are one step ahead of your competition.
At Plexus, we have Apprentices and Legal Assistants who came to us on work experience and then successfully applied for longer term positions. That’s because work experience is a great way to become visible, show us who you are and what you can do. It also gives you the opportunity to discuss common challenges with people who have been where you are now and it can open the door to valuable suggestions and guidance.
