What has been your highlight so far at GNLaw?
My highlight has definitely been commencing my training contract at the beginning of March. It took a lot of hard work during my year as a paralegal and I am so happy that it paid off.
What made you apply to GNLaw?
I knew that I wanted to try working in mental health law after studying it at university. I googled ‘mental health paralegal jobs’, the first hit was GN Law, I applied, and I got the Job. It was fate!
What has been your most enjoyable moment at GNLaw?
My most enjoyable moment at GN Law was when I managed to successfully argue for the discharge of one of my mental health clients at her Hospital Managers Hearing. It was so rewarding to know that I had played a part in getting her out of hospital and on to the next step of her recovery.
What do you like most about working for GNLaw?
The thing that I like the most about working for GN Law is the people that I work with. Everyone is so friendly, and always willing to give help and advice.
What advice would you give to an incoming trainee?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions- if you don’t ask you will never learn!
How does your experience at GNLaw compare to your expectations?
I was not expecting to be given the amount of responsibility that I have had during my time here. Within a few weeks I was running my own files, and within a few months I was representing clients at Hospital Managers Hearings. In the family department I had the opportunity to work on some really interesting cases involving families from the Orthodox Jewish Community in London, which has included working with some of the leading barristers in this area of law. I know that being given this amount of responsibility at this stage of my training will make me a better solicitor when I qualify.
