Work Experience and Training Contracts

At Emery Johnson Astills we are committed to supporting the next generation of solicitors wherever and whenever we can.

We are proud of the solicitors, trainees and legal clerks who started their legal careers with a work experience placement with Emery Johnson Astills and those who have trained with us, specialised and enhanced their expertise with our support.

Work Experience Placements

Emery Johnson Astills run annual summer placements for graduates who wish to undertake work experience.  These placements run from July to August each year and are open exclusively to University Graduates who have not previously taken advantage of an Emery Johnson Astills placement. If you wish to apply for a summer placement, please send your curriculum vitae and a covering letter to Isabel Wilson between 1 January and 30 April in the year for which you are applying.  We are sorry but we are unable to consider applications received outside of this period.

We will notify you in writing by 31 May if you have been successful.  Unfortunately the high number of applications we receive each year means that we are unable to reply should you not be successful.
