Internship Completed at High Street Solicitors For Law Student

High Street Solicitors advocate giving students the opportunity to experience the potential environment that they could be a part of in the future as well as the opportunity to utilise their learning in practice. We recognise the importance of employability skills such as communication, team work and time management, the skills are instilled in our interns to allow them to understand how vital such skills are to daily activities.

HSS specialises in a variety of areas of Civil Litigation and ensure that the students who are given the opportunity, are exposed to these areas. HSS’ approach is to be as flexible to the students current student life schedule as possible; whether they’re in the midst of their studies or at the end of the academic year.

Our hope is to encourage these students to consider High Street Solicitors as potential workplace for them in the future but our priority is to consider their prospective futures as Solicitors, Barristers and Judges, by giving them the earliest opportunity to grow into the individual they will be. HSS want to be a positive influence the legal community and help the careers of the prospective lawyers.

Ciara’s Experience

My name is Ciara Neville, I am in my second year of studying law, and I was offered an incredible placement opportunity to work alongside the staff at High Street Solicitors.

I was welcomed in by all the team who treated me with respect and kindness, providing me with exciting jobs and plenty of training for a future career in civil litigation, like drafting Calderbank offers.

When reflecting on my time at the firm, the development of my legal knowledge, communication skills, and perseverance and motivation have been significant to me. It was engaging to learn about the developing teams, such as GDPR Breaches, Mis-sold Pension Schemes and new areas of law that the business is beginning for 2022.

Finally, the diversity of staff and their stories were comforting, they have inspired me to graduate and build on my employment skills as I now understand the value of experience and practice in a legal career.

My time in High Street has given me a lot of perspective, I now have a graduation plan and I wish to continue my employment and personal growth.
