Each year, Express Solicitors are delighted to provide law students with the opportunity to gain work experience through our Easter Vacation Scheme. The scheme is open to all law students who are either in their final year of their LLB, or currently studying their GDL or LPC. They are invited to apply, explaining why they are interested in working within a Personal Injury firm, before a shortlist of candidates are invited for an interview and technical test.
We are delighted to announce this year’s winners were Rebecca Bernard and Caroline Rigby, pictured from left to right with Recruitment Officer, Fiona Laird.
During their work experience, they were able to expand their knowledge of the different areas of personal injury, as well as gain some practical experience. Sitting in the various departments they were given a variety of tasks including: research, completing questionnaires, drafting case summaries and listening in on conference calls.
Both Rebecca and Caroline remarked upon how friendly and supportive everyone in the firm has been and how much they enjoyed their experience.
When asked for comments Rebecca commented, “I have found the experience insightful and encouraging within the warming atmosphere of Express Solicitors.” Caroline too praised the week’s experience claiming, “It has honestly been my favourite vacation scheme I’ve ever completed.”
The application process for next year’s Easter Vacation scheme will open early 2018, further details will follow nearer to this date and applications will be made via the Express website.
