1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


I was following trainee solicitors from different departments from day to day and doing tasks which they set for me. These included: drafting letters for clients, file organising, preparing documents for clients, research into clients.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I have learnt a lot about office etiquette. Another key skill I have developed is being able to pick out the important and appropriate details for a task from large documents. Also as a result of presentations I received I know a lot more about entering into law and have greater commercial awareness.

I found the programme highly interesting and really useful in terms of teaching me a lot about the role of a trainee solicitor and in general about commercial law firms. I would definitely recommended this programme to anyone considering a career in Law
