People make a massive difference
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for getting me a place with Jim at BSB solicitors. I was well looked after, being taken to courts and police stations rather than the menial work often given to work experience students at law firms.
I learnt a huge amount about what it is actually like to be a criminal solicitor, not only through insightful conversations with Jim and the other lawyers, but also by being able to observe the hours, what it was like to interact with different kinds of clients, and compare the differences between being a solicitor and a barrister which are parts of the job students don’t normally get to see, but which indeed can become the most important factors in deciding which type of law, and what kind of lawyer you want to be.
None of this would have been possible without you. Every time I see what you have done for the Amos Bursary, I’m left in awe at how amazing a person you are. And then you move on from just sponsoring and mentoring to provide us with a chill out space, work experience opportunities and continue to put your all into the Bursary. You truly have left a lasting legacy on our lives.
Thank you for all that you have done,
