An update from our wonderful trainee Solicitor Chloe
My name is Chloe and I am now in the second year of my traineeship with Blackwood & Smith.
You might remember reading my previous blog in 2021 where I provided an insight into a day in the life of a first-year trainee at the firm. Fast forward to now, and I am now less than 10 weeks away from qualifying as a Solicitor! Time really does fly and much of my day to day work has changed in the last year or so.
