Alex Hartnoll – Paralegal

I had been working full time in a role unrelated to law before deciding that I needed a qualification under my belt in order to get a career rather than ‘just a job’. After narrowing down my options, I decided upon undertaking a law degree and began studying with Nottingham Trent University in 2011, studying on a part-time basis through distance learning whilst continuing to work full time. I graduated with a qualifying law degree in July 2015.

I began working for Hegarty Solicitors in June 2015 as a Trainee Legal Secretary and gained practical experience in the daily workings of a law firm. I gradually developed to a Trainee Legal Assistant in the Family Department whereby my experience expanded to attending Court and sitting behind Counsel.

I have recently become a Trainee Paralegal with a view to completing further exams with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives to enable me to eventually become qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive. Upon completing the law degree, it was important for me to develop from a graduate in the right law firm and so working for Hegarty Solicitors was of significant importance. The opportunities that I have been given have provided me with a realistic and invaluable insight into the practicalities of law.
