Videos: A Career in Law

Here is a series of professionally produced videos presented by Gail Porter which take an in-depth look at a career as a solicitor.  The videos include a wide variety of interviews with law students, trainee solicitors, graduate recruitment personnel, assistant/associate solicitors, law firm partners, and HR personnel.

The videos give a great insight into many aspects of life as a solicitor and trainee solicitor, as well as giving an idea of what firms will be looking for in their trainees and young solicitors.  There is also some good advice for anyone seeking to secure a training contract.

The series is in three parts as follows:
