I first studied Theology at the University of London, taking the opportunity to immerse myself in a different subject that I enjoyed before embarking upon the GDL and LLM/LPC at the University of Law. I thoroughly enjoyed my legal studies during which time I undertook a number of work experience placements and also volunteered at my local Citizens Advice Bureau.
TWM was at the top of my list when I was applying for training contracts. It had gone through an exciting period – having taken part in a number of mergers and continuing to expand the breadth and quality of its service across its then seven offices (now increasing to 8). Its down to earth and approachable ethos was encouraging as well as the positive commitment to the surrounding communities through charitable fundraising and networking events.
I have just begun my second seat in Commercial Property in Reigate having completed my first seat in Residential Property in the Epsom office. I have gained exposure to interesting and challenging work and the opportunity for responsibility from an early stage with a great support network. I have increased my knowledge and skills through first hand experience which is greatly encouraged at TWM; trainees do not sit on the sidelines!
I have also organised and attended a number of social events at the firm from ‘Fish and Chip Friday’ to the wonderful Summer Ball. I would encourage everyone to apply to TWM as a trainee - the work, support and social life are fantastic, don’t miss out!
