Why Watkins & Gunn?

“Ever since I could wear my mothers heels around the house, impersonating Elle Woods from Legally Blonde, I have wanted to be a lawyer. I have always wanted to help people and I genuinely believe that being a solicitor allows me to do this. The law is intriguing and I am very excited about my future in the sector.

“I have wanted to work with Watkins and Gunn for many years. Throughout my degree I kept up to date with the firm’s social media accounts, keeping an eye out for vacancies. I then emailed Clive for a weeks work experience in 2015 – which they gave me – and they not been able to get rid of me since!”
