Ruby Begum – Our Newly Qualified Solicitor
My journey with Ashley Wilson Solicitors started as a paralegal at the firm in 2010. I was still studying for my LLB law degree at the time but wanted as much exposure to the practical aspects of the profession as possible. I worked alongside some of the Partners at the firm focusing mainly on Property transactions. I was like a fly on the office walls, observing everyone’s movement and listening in on telephone conversations with other solicitors. I then progressed on to doing my Legal Practice Course at the College of Law but continued to work as a paralegal at Ashley Wilson Solicitors. Before I knew it, I was doing my seats in civil litigation, family and probate, all of which were a minefield. During my training contract I received excellent support and guidance from truly exceptional colleagues at the firm, from the Partners and solicitors to the support staff! I soon got the experience and knowledge that I hoped for and was well on my way to qualification. The life skills that I have gained during my time at Ashley Wilson Solicitors has been priceless, there are certain things that no amount of reading can teach you. The opportunities I have had during my civil litigation seat were phenomenal, I did not imagine ever having the knowledge or confidence to present an application before a judge, yet I not only got through it but have succeeded on numerous occasions! I am very pleased to announce that I was admitted on to the roll on 1st October 2014. I have now qualified!
A big thank you to all my colleagues at Ashley Wilson Solicitors – your support over the past 4 years has been amazing!
