We were delighted to attend the Cooper's Company and Coborn School on 16th November to help with their annual 'Careers' Convention.

The school  is an Academy School with an academic Sixth Form of over 450 pupils where results are excellent, both at GCSE and A' Level.

Three members of staff went along to answer any questions pupils or parents may have concerning a career in law.

Laura Hanford, Kaylee Justham and Cathy Page were all present. 

Laura qualified as a solicitor in 2006 currently working in our Family Department at Gidea Park, she can often be found in the local County Courts assisting her clients as well as seeing them in the office. Laura also specialises in Child law, both private and public.

Kaylee is due to qualify as a solicitor in February 2018 as she is nearing the end of her training contract with ourselves. Kaylee is based at Romford in the Family Department.

Cathy has been a legal secretary working in various departments at F Barnes for some years but more recently has decided to train to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive specialising in the Wills and Probate Department and is based at Gidea Park.

The team were able to help with different qualifying routes as a solicitor, legal executive, paralegal and legal secretary amongst others.

Working in the legal sector has so many different opportunities. From interesting support roles to becoming a director of a company which practices in law. There are now several different  choices of study route and it is important that you find out which options may be open to you.
