Latest episode of The LCN Podcast looks at how students can make the most of their time at university

updated on 31 August 2021

The latest episode of The LawCareers.Net Podcast, released this week, is focused on how first-year students can navigate work experience, prepare for interviews and process rejection.

Featuring Nadine Owusu-Ansah, a paralegal and future trainee at magic circle law firm Linklaters, the episode covers her journey to a training contract, how to secure paralegal roles, volunteering and engaging with professionals on online platforms.

Nadine highlights the importance of getting advocacy experience through mooting and public speaking. She explains what the STARR+ method is and how it will help students to elevate their applications and answers at interviews.

Nadine says: “Just get involved. Uni is a great time to experience and take as much opportunities as possible.”
