Interns celebrate completion of internship at solicitors
Three interns have celebrated the completion of a new training programme at Parnalls Solicitors following a gruelling two-week training and work experience. The company developed the intern programme as a way for interns to experience the working life of a solicitor and to demonstrate to Directors their skills and ability to learn on the job.
The interns: Luke Logiudice, Kyle Walker and Ryan Lemon are in the early stages of their law careers, having completed law degrees and are looking for roles within the legal sector. Each were set challenges and exercises to test a variety of skills including critical thinking, a debate, two presentations and drafting social media posts to promote the company’s services. They were also required to shadow partners in meetings with clients and produce documents based on legal matters.
Mark Parnall, Managing Partner at Parnalls Solicitors stated, “This is the first time we have offered an internship programme at the company and we are delighted with the result. The calibre of the three participants selected was very high and we were impressed with the energy and enthusiasm with which they approached all the tasks set for them.”
The internships were offered as part of the new training programme with the potential for participants to be offered a position within the company. The role would include the completion of the Legal Practice Course which is the final vocational stage for becoming a solicitor. This combination of academic study and practical work within a legal office environment enables solicitors in training to qualify to practice law in England and Wales.
Additionally, two other young members of staff, Meg Ridgman and David Evans are embarking on training programmes in roles within the Commercial & Conveyancing and Private Client departments. They follow in the steps of Jack Crosley, a Litigation Assistant, plus Gemma Blakely & Xoe Parry, Commercial & Conveyancing Assistants, who are currently completing their CILEx qualification to become Chartered Legal Executives.
