Rollits support Whizz-Kidz with Work Experience Placement for Leah

Rollits are very proud to support Whizz-Kidz charity by providing work experience for disabled young people in the region.

Whizz-Kidz is a charity with a mission to transform the lives of disabled children by providing the equipment, support and life skills they need, when they need them - giving them the chance to develop their full potential.

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 placement

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 much.

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 worthwhile.

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."
