In November we welcomed Leah
Rowles who joined us for a week long placement. You can read all
about Leah's experience and what she did during her week with us in
her blog below.
Duties completed whilst on
Monday - Private Capital with
Lucy, this was very interesting experience as I wrote a report
about social media and how it can be reflected within a will. Prior
to doing this I had no clue social media had an impact on a persons
will. I also had a little knowledge about digital asset management
as a whole. I also researched lasting power of attorney and
guardianships along with finding out the difference between lasting
power of attorney and enduring power of attorney. All in all this
is a very friendly department, I felt extremely welcomed. The
attitude of everybody was great.
Tuesday - Commercial Law with
Hollie, this was great fun learning all about share buy back. In
this department I learnt about all the different structures of
companies, the benefits of each structure and the disadvantages.
This department was also very friendly and I enjoyed it very
Wednesday - Dispute Resolution
with Sophie, I completed a letter to a client who was in a
neighbour dispute giving him advice and explaining terms such as
harassment and the different types. Its amazing how little things
actually are effected by the law.
Thursday - Property with
Amy, I spent the majority of my time filling in information about
stamp duty land tax on various properties. Although I have to admit
I didn't find this the most interesting department, it was very
Friday - Dispute Resolution
with Sophie, family and matrimonial research and into the
differences between a divorce and legal separation. This is
extremely interesting and I never realised there were as much legal
procedures to an every day occurrence.
Summing up her week with
Rollits, Leah said "Overall the attitude was absolutely excellent,
I felt very welcomed and I do believe that your slogan 'more than
just a law firm' truly reflects the way you are."
Mark Dixon, Partner and
Training Principal at Rollits comments "We are pleased to be able
to support Whizz-Kidz by providing work placements to their members
and give them real-life experience of what it is like to work in a
commercial office environment."
