Browne Jacobson hosts virtual legal insight session
26 September 2022
Law firm Browne Jacobson gave the students of Edmonton County School a unique and valuable insight into the various routes into a legal career on Monday 26 September as part of ROK's Insights into Law event series.
The virtual event featured a presentation and Q&A event, lead by the firm's early careers advisor Zena Comrie, and outlined the various pathways into law, including information on how long each route would be likely to take and how much each would be likely to cost.
Liam Walsh, trainee solicitor, Emily Berridge, who was a solicitor apprenticeship and is now qualified, and Sherelle Appleby qualified barrister also attended the event to give personal insights and answer questions, whilst providing a full account on the experiences of working in a law firm.
Denise Stephenson, CEO and founder of ROK, said: "It was great to work with Browne Jacobson and Edmonton County School (ECS) on delivering this event, particularly considering the challenges students had around 'Zoom Fatigue' following the Covid Pandemic and the fact that this session was online.
"The fifteen students who attended from ECS were engaged and very much interested in pursuing a career in law. After a bit of prompting, they asked relevant and pertinent questions and although there was a lot of information communicated within a very short space of time, I hope that the session gave the students a clearer insight into law and what they want to do with their careers going forward.
"We are pleased we are able to continue to deliver our aims of providing employment experiences and opportunities to those who otherwise would not be able to access them"
