Your message to other students considering a similar job role, organisation or sector?

I have really enjoyed my experience at Reeds solicitors; I was told that they would open a vacancy following my graduation. It is a great team to have been part of and a brilliant place to work. I was given lots of opportunities such as shadowing barristers and solicitors in the Magistrates and Crown Courts, I learnt a lot and met some wonderful people who I hope to meet again. I was also trusted to complete case work, such as transcribing a one hour police interview, reviewing text messages that could be used as evidence in a case and copy typing a hand-written statement. I did not want my internship to end!
