Above all, the lunch really motivated me to continue seeking a legal career despite numerous obstacles that aspiring solicitors encounter. I learnt that despite such obstacles, as long as you continue to be determined and actively seek opportunities to enhance your CV, a successful career in law is possible.
The unbiased advice I received at the lunch, I am sure I will remember for the entirety of my degree and beyond.
I would like to thank Chris for organising the lunch as I believe such events are crucial to demonstrate that determined aspiring solicitors can succeed in law despite the barriers underrepresented groups face.
I would highly recommend the experience to any aspiring solicitor as it provided a rare and informal insight into the legal profession and the opportunities I hope will be available to me when I graduate.”“The January Aspiring Solicitors Lawyers Lunch was a fantastic occasion for me. As every international student knows (as well as all other aspiring solicitors) it is incredibly difficult to get your foot in a door of a legal company.
The Aspiring Solicitors Lawyers Lunch gave me support and assurance. Chris was incredibly friendly and helpful. He is a fountain of advice regardless of the stage of your legal career. Even if you are only considering the possibility of becoming a lawyer you would definitely get a great deal from this opportunity.
In short, the Aspiring Solicitors Lawyers Lunch is a great opportunity for any aspiring solicitor and I would highly recommend taking this chance to every law student or graduate.”
