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

I was involved in litigation cases where I was putting together trial paperwork and bundles. I did work in different areas of law, which narrowed my choices when thinking about specialising in one or two areas after graduation. I did legal research in different ways for different areas of law. I drafted letters and documents for court cases, which improved my legal drafting skills. I am very grateful for this opportunity.

This experience was overall amazing. It has boosted my confidence and provided me with new contacts. I would urge anyone to apply for internships even if they are not paid, because it will open many doors and provide many future opportunities. This was reflected during my internship, as I secured a paralegal role a day after my internship ended.
