Apprentice in a UK top 20 law firm – Katie Wallett, Irwin Mitchell

I have been working as a Paralegal Apprentice for Irwin Mitchell for six months. I first thought of apprenticeships when I didn’t feel completely comfortable at the idea of going to university and was introduced to them by career advisors. I felt my sixth form really pushed students to go down the university route, so I was proactive and worked on my CV before attending careers and apprenticeship events in my local area.
