Going into work experience, I was naturally nervous and had little knowledge on how a law firm was run and what a workplace environment in the law field was really like. However, after my experience at Freedman and Gopalan solicitors, my knowledge was broadened and my perpetual interest in becoming a Lawyer had only grown more prominent.
Throughout my time here, I was able to participate in clerical tasks such as scanning and destroying file contents, archiving files, and printing out documents, which gave me an insight on what a typical day would be like for a solicitor, as they of course wouldn’t have a case to work on every day. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to work on a chronology of an ongoing case, as although it is just putting events into chronological order, it also broadened my understanding of the career, and was an extremely interesting opportunity for me to look at a real affidavit and understand the importance of different aspects of a case. By the end of my work experience I had also written several articles on current topics which was beneficial for me to gain a more insightful understanding on these issues, as well as being able to work on my report writing skills.
What made my experience at Freedman and Gopalan Solicitors the most enjoyable was the amazing staff who were extremely considerate throughout my time there. From my first day there, I did not feel ashamed to ask any questions from any member of the staff, who were nothing short of accommodating. Jasmin supervised me for the 4 days I was there, and if it weren’t for her welcoming nature, I would have been much more nervous going into work experience. I also had the pleasure of meeting Mittu, and even in our limited interactions due to her understandably busy schedule, her kindness and professionalism shone through. Throughout my time there, I had the privilege of watching the employees doing the job that I wish to do in the future, and their work ethic was truly a reflection of the company’s award-winning reputation.
Ultimately, I thank the employees of Freedman and Gopalan Solicitors for giving me the opportunity to not only get an experience of what it would be like to work in my dream job, but for also providing me with the utmost care and compassion that a company can offer.
