I have loved being a part of Fieldfisher Belfast's inaugural Graduate Scheme! Everyone in the Belfast Office were very warm and welcoming and it was great to have four amazing peers taking part in the experience alongside you. I also thoroughly enjoyed the continuation of my studies with the University of Law regarding the practicalities of Civil Litigation. The sectors which I experienced within the company were Personal Injury and Medical Negligence and Risk. In Personal Injury and Medical Negligence I aided in the drafting of witness statements, compiling quantum reports, researching and preparing legal research for new cases and drafting various pleadings for court. I have also been fortunate to have been a party to important court proceedings and conference calls with clients. My experience in Risk has also provided me with great knowledge and experience in utilising cloud-based, AI infused technology. This allowed me to assist in the researching and preparation of Anti-Money Laundering packs for the company to on-board new clients. Both placements have accredited me with skills which have been invaluable in my day-to-day role at the firm and will no doubt benefit me in my legal career going forward.

Throughout my graduate seat in Belfast I felt supported and encouraged to step outside my comfort zone. One of the highlights of the graduate scheme has been working and learning alongside other graduates. Having a group of peers who have also just finished university to talk about the work we are doing and the university of law training that we undertook as part of the graduate scheme has been invaluable. The group of graduates has provided a nice support network when starting out in the world of work.
