Work experience

Hardwicke is committed to providing opportunities for young people to have access to the Bar and life in chambers in order to provide information, make connections and demystify what it’s like inside a barristers’ chambers.

We have been running a successful and sought-after programme of work experience placements for many years.

We will be holding a virtual work experience morning this March.  Applications are invited from students aged between 15 and 18 years’ of age, from all backgrounds. The session will feature presentations from members of the staff team and barristers followed by a Q & A session.

We are particularly keen to encourage students from state schools, BAME backgrounds and from lower than average socio-economic backgrounds to apply, as these groups tend to be under-represented in the legal profession.

How to apply

Applications are now closed.

We would like to say yes to everyone, but unfortunately, we get very many applications and so we need to select successful students who have demonstrated on their form a real desire to attend.

We are sorry that some people will be disappointed, but we would encourage you to apply again another time.
