Junior Smith

I thought about studying for an undergraduate degree in law, but working in conjunction with learning was a critical factor for me

My work at Express Solicitors covers so much and I am learning every day. One day I might be checking details of a claim, taking out insurance policies for clients or making sure files are complete and the next I might be creating physical case files for fee earners, checking accident locations or carrying out conflict checks. No two days are the same. It is hard work, but it is definitely rewarding and a step forward each day in gaining the extensive experience required to becoming a successful solicitor. 

It has been a great experience and I would thoroughly recommend it. Even if you only go on to complete the Legal apprenticeship, which alone opens up many career paths, if you change your mind from law, it is still a very good thing to have on your profile. Personally, I want to progress through the apprenticeship stages, become qualified as a chartered legal executive and then later on undertake the legal practice course and qualify as a solicitor.
