Hosted Work Experience Placement

Our firm this year was delighted to have hosted work experience placement students from Mueller College, St Rita’s College, Grace College and the North Lakes State College through the July and September school holidays. This year, students were able to accompany solicitors on court attendances, assisting our staff with the drafting of our weekly editorial submission to the North Lakes Messenger for which the students were accredited with co-authorship rights (a big feather in their cap for their personal CV’s) and were given the opportunity to sink their teeth into simulated case scenarios which enabled them to gain a much fuller appreciation of the exact type of work we as solicitors do.?All of the students particularly enjoyed the “Sleuthing” job simulation where the students were given the task of trying to uncover hidden lotto winnings in a mock simulated Family Law property settlement dispute. Our firm is highly committed towards assisting the youth of today in steering those interested into careers in the law, which is one of the biggest employers of personnel in the State.
