Since becoming a member of Aspiring Solicitors, I have attended informative CV and application skills workshops in addition to Law firm Open Days and networking events. I have also found the online resources to be a great source of information when preparing applications, refining my CV and drafting covering letters.
Aspiring Solicitors have provided me with invaluable advice and guidance, which has given me the confidence to pursue my career in what is a very competitive industry. After first meeting Chris at a University careers talk two years ago, I was inspired by the Aspiring Solicitors initiative and the team’s commitment to helping their member’s access experience and knowledge of the legal world. I believe that Aspiring Solicitors offers a different perspective towards applications, far from the generic advice available from generalist sources. The team are able to provide constructive personal feedback which is informed by many years of experience. I am positive that I will take the skills learnt from this process with me throughout my legal career.
I often recommend Aspiring Solicitors to friends and colleagues who aspire to enter the profession as I believe it is a fundamental resource when planning a career in law. I would highly recommend that aspiring lawyers attend AS events and take advantage of all of the fantastic opportunities which are available to them, as this undoubtedly offers the chance get your career off to the best possible start.
