Work with us
Welcome to the CAS Work Experience online information page, we help you find the work placement scheme.
If you are looking for a legal career, CAS offers you a brilliant opportunity to see what it’s like to work in a firm for a week or two through a work placement scheme.
A work placement scheme works both ways. It gives you an insight into life as a solicitor, and it gives firms a chance to see you as a potential employee. In fact, many students have obtained training contracts because of their performance on work placement.
It’s not going to be easy to obtain the work placement you desire, as demand is very high, so you have to promote yourself in the best way, You have to demonstrate why you stand out of the crowd leaving no details out, showing invention and initiative on your application. There is no way, you will be disappointed if you have managed to sell yourself to the best of your ability. As a result, there is no doubt you will get work experience on merit which is the most important thing to get onto the career ladder.
Time frames and deadlines:
Through our programme, you can apply anytime. You don’t need to stick to the official deadlines. Once we receive your application, we will get in touch with you to discuss the time framework and your application with any questions we may have.
We would like to emphasise that your information will never be used by us, or a 3rd party for any other purpose other than for its intended use and will not be stored.
We will only submit your details to firms on our database and will never show a bias to any firm, but as we only deal with Law firms you may wish to consider sending your work experience application to other pro bono groups.
