Work experience

Whether you are thinking about a career in law, or have already embarked on your studies to become a lawyer, work experience is invaluable. At Sintons we recognise this and are keen to help the lawyers of the future as much as we can but you’ll appreciate we cannot accommodate everyone.

Depending upon what stage you are at in your career, here is how we may be able to help:

University Student

As part of our graduate recruitment assessment we offer a week’s work experience. This is a competitive process. For further information on this, please look at our graduate recruitment page.

College or School Student

If you are not quite ready to apply for a training contract, but are interested in finding out more about law and Sintons, then we run annual open evenings where you will find out about the role of a solicitor in a law firm and the other careers available.

Solicitor Apprenticeships

We are proud to be one of 5 law firms in the North East who, in connection with City, University of London, are employing students to take on a six-year fully funded apprenticeship. Our selection process for the 2017 intake of apprentices has now closed, however please check back and updates will be posted on the next intake shortly.
