Our placement students

Current trainee solicitor Melodie Thompson did a placement with us before applying for a training contract:

“I knew that I wanted to train with a firm who not only had a great reputation but also one where I had developed a personal relationship first.  From the outset I was involved with live cases, completing legal research, getting involved in department meetings and reviewing Civil Procedure Rules updates to ensure they were correctly recorded. The people I met were not just leaders in their field but also inclusive and approachable. These things combined confirmed to me that Royds Withy King was the right firm for me. I can honestly say that the work experience placement was the best decision I have made – I have not looked back!”
