Taunton solicitors prepare graduates for a career in law
South West-based law firm Clarke Willmott has hosted a week-long vacation scheme for law graduates at its office in Taunton, Somerset.
The firm’s Commercial & Private Client Litigation partner, Esther Woodford, was joined by 13 university students for a structured week of work experience with Clarke Willmott, including one-to-one training and workshops to help them understand how a top 100 legal firm operates, said the company.
Each law student was able to spend time within a specific area of legal practice, including Clinical Negligence, Private Capital, Litigation, Employment Law, Family Law, Corporate and Property.
On the final day, the students gave a presentation to partners and staff at Clarke Willmott’s Taunton office.
Organiser of the scheme, Esther Woodford, said:
“We have been very impressed by the calibre of candidates who applied for and participated in the scheme this year – and would encourage them all to consider applying to pursue their legal careers with Clarke Willmott as vacancies arise.
“We hope to run a similar scheme in 2019, with details and timing to follow towards the end of this year.”
The students selected to participate in this year’s course came from a range of universities, including Cardiff University, Birmingham University, Aston University in Birmingham, Oxford University, Bristol University, York University, Durham University and Exeter University.
