I am a lower 6th form student at Bishop Vesey Grammar School. As part of my enrichment, I decided to complete two days work experience at Pickford Solicitors, to find out more about the legal industry.

During my time at Pickford’s, I gained a large insight into the work a solicitor carries out, from drafting a variety of contracts and agreements in relation to property law. I had the opportunity to sit in and observe a customer meeting, where I learnt how to explain the law to customers.

The staff at Pickford’s were incredibly welcoming, and could not have been more helpful in sharing their knowledge. I have gained a surprising amount of information in a very short space of time in arrange of aspects in the role of a solicitor, as well as thoroughly enjoying myself.

Overall, my experience at Pickford’s was invaluable, which has reinforced my decision to pursue a career in law and I look forward to my next steps which include applying to university, and qualifying as a solicitor in the near future.

Thank you for reading my story.
