Some frequently asked questions

There is no application process for our virtual work experience programme and anybody interested in pursuing a career in commercial law can register for free. Due to the nature (difficulty) of the tasks, we feel it’s most suitable for undergraduate law students and non-law students who would like to qualify as solicitors.

Yes! All virtual work participants should include their experience in the ‘Extra-curricular activities’ section on their CV. All students who had a genuine attempt at completing all the tasks will also receive an online certificate to confirm they’ve completed the placement.

In the tasks description, you will find a recommended time needed to complete them. You don’t have to finish all modules in one day as it might be challenging! We recommend you plan the completion of the course over a few days. We find that non-law students might need to factor in some additional time in case they need to conduct any extra research to get familiarised with the tasks.

This programme was designed by our lawyers to best reflect the work our trainees do at Pinsent Masons. But don’t take our word for it! One of our Vacation Placement students commented that: “Having completed work experience at Pinsent Masons before undertaking the virtual programme, I can confirm that the tasks genuinely represent some of the work done by the Trainees and Solicitors at the firm on a day-to-day basis, giving students a realistic idea of the role of Solicitors.”
