My name’s Gemma and I’m currently an Apprentice Administration Assistant at Withers LLP undertaking the advanced legal administration apprenticeship. I will be recording my month-to-month experiences of my apprenticeship in this blog and thought I would start off with a bit of an introduction.
After completing my A Levels, I was originally planning to study Law at university. However, I decided that to develop my skills and qualities beyond what education had already offered me, there was no better place to do so than at an international law firm. I have so far been involved in organising and archiving legal files, updating contact clients using a database called InterAction and scanning, photocopying and filing legal documents.
I am thoroughly enjoying my experience so far and I would highly recommend a legal apprenticeship to someone with a genuine interest in law. My overall objective is to become a Paralegal or Legal Executive through full-time work and part-time study, a prospect that seems to be within reach for the near future because of this great opportunity with Damar.
I can’t wait to see what my next month will bring. Look out for my next blog post!
