I find it fun and some people recommended that I would like it.

What did you do during your work experience at FC Lawyers?

I worked alongside Rachelle doing business and corporate, Beth with Migration and Visas, Tessa and Jennifer doing Conveyancing and Chloe with Wills and Estates Law.

What did you find most exciting about your time at FC Lawyers?

The most exciting thing would be that I got to see how the lawyers act and work and the things they do on a daily basis.

What did you find least exciting about your time at FC Lawyers?

The least exciting thing was that I was only here for a day so I couldn’t experience everything that the Sunshine Coast team could show me.

What were the best things about your work experience time at FC Lawyers?

The best thing would be that I got to experience all types of law and not just one type with one person. A wide variety of law types with different people.

What were the most surprising things during your work experience?

One of the most surprising things would be how close in contact the Sunshine Coast lawyers are with the Brisbane legal team and how many different types of law there are.

Based on your experience today, what will you do from now on?

Based on this experience at FC Lawyers, from now on I will continue to explore what being a lawyer is like and continue to learn.
