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


As a work experience student, I had varied tasks each day from different departments so I had an understanding about what different departments do. I also had the chance to attend meetings and participate in discussions which I really enjoyed. Through this, I felt that I had a deeper understanding about life as a solicitor and the jobs they do. Besides that, I also met different solicitors in the department and enjoyed talking to them about a career in law. They gave me a further understanding about law and exceeded the stock information I read on the internet. It was enjoyable talking to different solitors and I think that Pinsent Masons is a really sociable company, just through the relationships between employees.
