Duties completed whilst onplacement
Monday - Private Capital withLucy, this was very interesting experience as I wrote a reportabout social media and how it can be reflected within a will. Priorto doing this I had no clue social media had an impact on a personswill. I also had a little knowledge about digital asset managementas a whole. I also researched lasting power of attorney andguardianships along with finding out the difference between lastingpower of attorney and enduring power of attorney. All in all thisis a very friendly department, I felt extremely welcomed. Theattitude of everybody was great.
Tuesday - Commercial Law withHollie, this was great fun learning all about share buy back. Inthis department I learnt about all the different structures ofcompanies, the benefits of each structure and the disadvantages.This department was also very friendly and I enjoyed it verymuch.
Wednesday - Dispute Resolutionwith Sophie, I completed a letter to a client who was in aneighbour dispute giving him advice and explaining terms such asharassment and the different types. Its amazing how little thingsactually are effected by the law.
Thursday - Property withAmy, I spent the majority of my time filling in information aboutstamp duty land tax on various properties. Although I have to admitI didn't find this the most interesting department, it was veryworthwhile.
Friday - Dispute Resolutionwith Sophie, family and matrimonial research and into thedifferences between a divorce and legal separation. This isextremely interesting and I never realised there were as much legalprocedures to an every day occurrence.
Summing up her week withRollits, Leah said "Overall the attitude was absolutely excellent,I felt very welcomed and I do believe that your slogan 'more thanjust a law firm' truly reflects the way you are."
