Image of Law Student Completes Placement at Prestigious International Law Firm

A Level Law student, Molly Woods, recently completed a week-long work experience placement at international Law Firm, Hill Dickinson’s Liverpool branch.

Molly applied for the placement through Manchester University’s Pathways to Law Programme. The 2-year programme is a widening participation scheme designed to support academically-able students from non-privileged backgrounds and interested in a career in Law, achieve their ambitions. Students that take part in the Pathways to Law Programme gain advantage from events held at the University of Manchester such as UCAS workshops, academic taster days and opportunities to meet and work with legal professionals.

Molly gained vital experience during her time at Hill Dickinson where she shadowed the associate in property Law, completing draft emails, letters and documents such as Conveyance Reports – some of which dated back to the 19th Century. During the week, Molly also attended an employment tribunal and witnessed a case of unfair dismissal.

Molly, who joined the College from Wirral Grammar School for Girls and plans to study Law at either Manchester, UCL, Warwick or Chester University, commented, “The experience has again furthered my determination to become a lawyer as it is something I find fascinating and I know I will enjoy in the future.”

During her time at College, Molly has also taken part in the Bar Mock Trial Competition at Chester Crown Court where she had the opportunity to shadow a Barrister. Our most recent cohort of students to take part in the Bar Mock Trial Competition have progressed to the next stage  after winning the regional title and Chester Shield and have the chance of taking part in the final at the Old Bailey in London.
