Administrator

In a part time capacity, I have been working in an administrative role, where my responsibilities ranged from processing orders (which involved liaising with customers both face to face and over the phone) and contacting suppliers for the purchasing of materials, to the estimating of costs and invoicing.

Career

Manchester Settlement Advice Clinic

Family Law Advisor

Under the supervision of a qualified solicitor I worked with a member of the public struggling to afford legal advice to provide such advice free of charge. This involved interviewing the client, taking notes, researching the law and drafting a letter of advice on the subject of Family Law. This provided first hand experience of working in a legal environment; dealing with clients, researching solutions and communicating the law in a layman-friendly way.

This is a garden centre that allows disabled people to carry out meaningful and helpful work, while being under the supervision of volunteers such as myself, and my time here was both rewarding and meaningful.

Career

Chattertons Solicitors

Summer Placement

Here I spent the lion share of my time shadowing one of the Partners in the Newark branch. This involved sitting in with client meetings, reading cases, listening-in on phone calls and overall getting a feel for what a property solicitor does. During my time at Chattertons, I also spent a day with a partner from the litigation department and visited another branch spending time with various departments.

Career

Wrigley Claydon

Legal Experience

I managed to spend time in various departments. As well as assisting general office tasks and gaining invaluable advice from the experienced solicitors, I experienced a more firsthand view of the everyday work of the firm. This varied, from house visits in probate, to reading some conveyancing and property case notes, and even being treated to a trip to court with one of the Family Law solicitors.
