What is it like to do work experience with McSherry Halliday, you ask? Well, I’m going to give you an insight from the perspective of a postgraduate student taking on a 10 week placement at the firm. Oh, and I should also mention that this was a virtual placement. As we all know, not many people are going into the office just now – the word “Coronavirus” springs to mind. McSherry Halliday partnered up with the University of Strathclyde to offer a placement opportunity under the University’s “Work-Based Learning” elective. This elective is offered on the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice. The idea behind carrying out a placement in a firm is that students will get an insight into working with “real-life” clients and be able to apply what is learned from workplace activities to their day-to-day learning and development throughout the Diploma.
