Garner & Hancock is one of the West London’s longest established and most reputable law firms. We have the expertise to provide a full range of legal services for you and your business. Our firm offers services in most legal fields including probate, litigation, Wills, property (residential and commercial), family, employment and dispute resolution.

We offer a small number of unpaid week-long work placements for any university or post graduate students looking to develop their CV in preparation for applying for a training contract with our firm. We normally only accept applications from those eligible to apply for a training contract during the same year the work experience placement takes place. Ordinarily this means that you will be in your second or third year of a full time law degree, in your final year of a non-law degree or undertaking post graduate study. To apply please send a covering letter and a copy of your CV to email@example.com. The deadline for work placements is 1st February for Easter and for summer is 1st May each year.

I have just completed a really valuable and interesting week of Work Experience at Garner & Hancock. I gained an insight into the Conveyancing, Dispute Resolution, Employment, Wills, Trusts and Probate and Corporate and Commercial departments. The work I was given involved real responsibility and gave me an insight into the day to day lives of the Solicitors in each area. Thank you so much to Garner & Hancock for this opportunity. I would thoroughly recommend applying to their Work Placement scheme.

Thank you for the opportunity of work experience at Garner & Hancock, I have thoroughly enjoyed the time with the firm. I felt very welcome from the first day, with everyone I met being very open and helpful. Sitting in a different team each day allowed for a wide variety of opportunities, from attending client meetings to drafting a will. Work experience at Garner & Hancock allowed for real involvement into the work and life of the firm and gave me an insight into what the firm is really about. I do not think that I have anything negative to say about the experience and I would not hesitate to recommend participating in work experience at Garner & Hancock.

Garner & Hancock has shown itself as an incredibly friendly firm with a very helpful approach to those it invites to undertake work experience here. The excellently organised work experience at the firm meant that I had access to as many areas of the law as possible, including corporate, conveyancing and litigation, and my work has varied from drafting deeds to going to a trial. Everyone, from trainees to partners, has been eager to involve me in the work they have done and given me the responsibility to undertake proper legal work and complete tasks myself. I would like to thank Garner & Hancock for the excellent experience they have given me this past week.
