Solicitor, Thomas Glover recently visited South Devon College to speak to the Law A Level students about what to expect studying Law at university, and what is involved when qualifying as a Solicitor or Barrister.
Thomas spoke about his experience in the legal profession, starting as an A Level student at South Devon College himself, before attending university in Liverpool, as well as what to expect when leaving Devon! He also discussed being called to the Bar, being admitted as a Solicitor and practising Crime, Property, Civil Litigation and Family Law.
The experience concluded with a class-wide debate on the Bar Career Aptitude Test questions to demonstrate the skills needed when practicing Law, such as deductive reasoning and persuasion. The students were then asked to apply these skills, by providing examples of interview questions where these skills were tested.
It was a pleasure to support one of our local colleges, and help their students gain a real understanding of the legal world, and we hope to see some of their talent in practice over the coming years.
