McSherry Halliday’s Trainee Solicitors, Louisa Doole (left) and Gill Middleton (right), have recently participated in a Careers Fair at St Matthews Academy in Saltcoats. The Careers Fair was organised for S1-S6 pupils and encouraged pupils to explore careers they are interested in. At their law stall, Louisa and Gill interacted with the pupils to give them an insight into what can be expected when undertaking a law degree and life as a Trainee Solicitor. McSherry Halliday is keen to support these activities as it is important to share experience and expertise with pupils early in their academic careers and for pupils to have access to information about higher education. Exposing children of all ages to the world of work can broaden their perspectives and spur them to more interesting and productive careers.
Louisa commented, “It was a pleasure to be invited to St Matthews Academy Careers Fair. From experience, deciding on a career can be a difficult phase of life and giving practical advice and guidance to the pupils hopefully benefitted them in choosing their career path. It was great to meet such enthusiastic pupils and hopefully we inspired some of them to take up a career in law!”
