As part of our #happytohelp mission, a number of our staff members are engaged in activities designed to help members of the local community outside of their usual legal advice capacity. Rachel Clegg, a Senior Paralegal in our Matrimonial team, is the latest member of the team to sign up to a University of Sheffield student mentoring scheme.
“I’m happy to be involved in such an important scheme to help younger budding members of the profession” comments Rachel. “When I was first starting on this path, I remember how daunting it all felt not only getting to grips with the law but also everything else that comes in trying to make it in the professional world. I hope I can help with providing guidance and support to make that an easier process for those taking part in the scheme.”
Howells has always been committed to training and development opportunities for young lawyers and has a number of events planned to celebrate their role in this 40th anniversary year of practice.
