The main reason in why I chose to work for McMillan Williams was that they are such a highly regarded firm in many diverse areas of law. It is a fast-growing firm that has achieved a great reputation both within my local community and nationally. It was also clear during the interview process that McMillan Williams puts a lot of effort into developing their paralegals. This can be shown by the annual Advocacy Competition, which I am very excited to be a part of and develop my advocacy skills against my peers.
I am eager to pursue my career aspirations of qualifying as a solicitor and hope to achieve this with the firm. I have gained experience in both property and family law on various work placements and am very excited to develop my knowledge in these areas further. I have a particular interest in property law since beginning my legal studies as an undergraduate and am looking forward to working with the conveyancing team here at McMillan Williams. I also hope to work within the criminal defence team. The reputation the firm has in this area is well known and this would be an excellent opportunity for anyone who has an interest in criminal law.
