I was delighted to get the opportunity to complete my work experience with Binchy Law.
I had never even considered studying law until I spent two weeks working alongside Fred and Stacey.Stacey was kind enough to let me go to court with her which gave me great insight as to how a court case is run.
The staff across the board were extremely kind and welcoming. I admire them for taking the time out of their busy schedules to make sure I was looked after.
St. Declan's Community College,
For my transition year work experience I spent a week in the prestigious law firm Binchy law.
Walking into a solicitors office is a very daunting experience as a lot of people would only ever enter those walls for a serious or more negative reason. On my first day I was very nervous to go inside, but as soon as I walked through the door I was welcomed with warm smiles, and I instantly relaxed and knew I was in good hands for the duration of my work experience. I was given a tour and greeted by all the staff working diligently in their offices. This gave me a feel for all the background work solicitors put in aside from fighting in court, which is all people usually hear about, and helped me appreciate the job even more. Even though they were all busy, they were able to fit in time to help me on my work experience journey and help me to learn valuable skills that I will be able to carry on into my future workplace, such as time management and organisational skills as well as some computer skills. I also got to experience secretarial work which surprised me, as people never really realise how hard secretaries work to keep a business running smoothly, and they do not get enough appreciation in my opinion.
I really enjoyed my time working at Binchy law and really appreciate all the staff who helped me along the way. I do not have any regrets in choosing this law firm for work experience and I would go back in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.
