We CANNOT assist with any requests for traditional High School compliant in-person Work Experience Placement

Our standard response to such requests is as follows:

"Thank you for being so interested in work experience at Blue Ocean Law Group.
Unfortunately, as a small boutique start-up Digital Law Firm we don’t have the capacity to accommodate in-person Work Experience Placements for High School Students.
If you are interested in learning more about the law here is a link to an article I wrote that aims to provide some initial guidance that can be followed anytime online.
We wish you the best in your future career.
Kind regards,"
