Greetings friends and welcome! I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2013, and over the past few years have progressed from paralegal to trainee and finally to NQ within a top 50 regional law firm. Join my guide dog and I as we ride the highs, weather the lows and tackle the challenges which form everyday life as a solicitor!
As paralegals, trainees and even qualified solicitors, we naturally devote a great deal of time and effort to impressing the 'people that matter'; but who exactly are the 'people that matter'?
As we all know, it takes a great deal of study and training to become a solicitor, and legal training does not end on qualification.
Much as I love my job, every so often I find myself wondering what it would be like to work in a somewhat less formal and somewhat more fun environment. Last week, I had the opportunity to find out!
In a few days’ time, I will be getting married and then heading off on my honeymoon for three weeks of exciting adventures and newly wedded bliss.
While I’m loathe to sit quoting tired, old clichés, it really does seem like only five minutes ago that I was commencing my training contract and not much more since I was opening my very first law book!
