A portrait image of the testimonial author

I took part in an internship placement as a law clerk, assisting solicitors with day-to-day management of their cases. This was an eye-opening experience for me, as I got to see first-hand what it takes to be a successful legal professional. It greatly improved my self-confidence and my wonderfully supportive team empowered me to contribute my ideas.

My internship showed me the real world of marketing. It was rewarding to arrange promotions using techniques I had learned in university. The best part was being offered a job at the end of my placement.
