Last week, Ben A and I had the fantastic opportunity to attend an event at Eversheds law firm in Newcastle.
The event, a day in the life of a lawyer, enabled us to see the workplace, talk to lawyers in the firm, and gain an understanding for what law may be like as a career. One of the senior partners told us exciting stories which really intrigued us.
Following a talk about law in general and the requirements, we got involved with some group work playing through real life cases which lawyers in the firm had been involved with. The lawyers explained the situation, detailing what a lawyer would be required to do. The event was a fantastic experience and gave us a clear insight into what law may be like as a career option.
