Depends on the law firm and depends on the department/practice area that you are going in to.

The bigger law firms will give you a really good opportunity to get involved in "live" work - you will probably be involved in the mundane aspects of the work but it will let you see the law in action anyway.

No matter what you are given, even if it is sorting a big box of deeds into a particular order, that may take for ever and seem so boring, if you are keen and enthusiastic, this will leave a good impressions with the firm and position you well for a traineeship.
