Careers Fair at Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy

This post was written by: Emma Wallace

Our Private Client Paralegal, Emma Wallace and Ilinca Mardarescu, Director & Employment Law Solicitor, attended a careers fair Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy in Slough this week. 

We set up a stand with various flyers (and of course the free pens!) relating to what we do at Aston Bond and the different areas of law that we provide. These were available for the children to take home and read so that they could gain a better understanding of what it means to be a lawyer.

From speaking to the children, we realised that many of them thought that being a lawyer was all about defending criminals in court. However, we explained to them that law is all-encompassing, and that there is a type of law out there for everyone, from real estate to family law to corporate.

Our table also included different information packs relating to the routes to get into law, which helped us to explain the process of becoming a lawyer to the students. This was particularly important to the older students who will be choosing their A Level soon and applying to university.

It was wonderful to see that a lot of the children showed a real interest in becoming a lawyer.  They were engaged and curious asking lots of questions.  Here at Aston Bond, our staff regularly undertake volunteering roles within the community, and helping to inspire young minds is one of our favourites.  We feel passionately that our job is to prepare the next generation who will one day be shaping our laws.
