Work Experience At Ringrose Law

Here at Ringrose Law we are committed to developing talented individuals from diverse backgrounds through various work placement opportunities.

We offer three work experience opportunities throughout the year, our Summer Vacation Scheme by application, one through the University of Lincoln Law in Practice module, and one by invitation which is awarded to an outstanding individual who we believe has shown passion, commitment and aptitude towards a career in law.

Summer Vacation Scheme

Ringrose Law is a progressive and forward-thinking firm, with well-established offices in Newark and Lincolnshire, a diverse mix of clients and excellent people. We are able to offer a wide range of legal services to our clients, and experience for those starting out in their legal careers.

At the centre of the firm’s success are its people, we have worked hard to create a culture where everyone feels valued.  Everyone is respected and recognised for the contributions they make, no matter their role. We have fun, look out for one another and celebrate our successes.

We are always looking to discover future talent and ensure we provide the best path to qualification. Today’s trainees could be tomorrow’s partners, so we want to nurture that.

The Placements

We offer up to 3 places on our summer vacation scheme which usually takes place at the end of June/beginning of July at our Lincoln office.

Placements are 2 weeks long and the placement is designed to provide you with valuable and practical experience within a law firm.

During the placement you will have the opportunity to gain experience in multiple departments. During your placement, you will be given the opportunity to shadow and observe colleagues, work on a range of tasks, and you may have the opportunity to observe client meetings and attend Court hearings. You will be supported by a supervisor and your performance will be reviewed with you and feedback given.

You will also have the opportunity to speak to our trainee solicitors, partners, lawyers etc and establish connections, you will gain a unique insight into the day-to-day life of a solicitor and hopefully be able to confirm if a career in law is for you.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for well-rounded individuals, those who can demonstrate commitment, ambition and enthusiasm for law, excellent communication and customer service skills, commercial awareness and a strong determination to succeed. Team working is important, as is the ability to work effectively alone whilst planning and prioritising your work.

Preference will be given to candidates in their second or third year of a law degree, their final year of a non-law degree, those who have already graduated and who are pursuing their next steps towards a career in law and who have an interest in completing their training at Ringrose Law.
