Work Experience

Kingsley Napley offers a number of unpaid work experience placements throughout the year, giving students an insight into life at a busy London law firm.

Every work experience placement is different, but all our placements are designed to give students the opportunity to make the most out of their time at KN. During a work experience placement you will meet people from across the firm and gain real hands-on experience by sampling lots of different aspects of the role of a lawyer, including;

  • Attending court and meetings with clients and counsel
  • Legal research tasks
  • Drafting documents
  • Shadowing qualified lawyers
  • General administration such as bundling

We also offer work experience placements in the business support teams:

  • Marketing
  • HR
  • IT
  • Finance
  • Knowledge & Information Services
  • Office and Building Services
  • Secretarial Services
