We recently hosted three work experience students from the University of South Wales, as part of their second-year module, Learning Through The Workplace.
Below, the students share their thoughts on their time with us, and explain how getting some hands on legal experience has benefited them.
Our HR Director, Paul Clayton, adds:
'Partnering with USW and other universities has provided benefits for all involved. There are more prospective trainee lawyers than there are jobs in the legal market – providing vocational experience to students in the local community will improve their ability to secure employment beyond studies.
Universities play a vital role in legal education; as an employer, we’re proud to play a vital role in acclimatising students for the environment of work.
It was a pleasure hosting the students.'

LLB (Hons) Law students, Hafsah Abdul Hardi, Kamila Marusarz and Louise Clavey share their views of working at Capital Law, Cardiff for their work experience. They were assigned two individual weeks’ work placement as part of the second-year module, Learning through the Workplace. Each week gave them the chance to explore what it’s like to work within different areas of law. Hafsah Abdul Hardi “Capital Law are a leading provider of commercial legal services, both in the UK and internationally. My work experience in their Cardiff office gave me the opportunity to find out how a successful law firm operates. I’ve had a taste of what it’s like to work in two different areas of law – employment and intellectual property.
