Sisay’s week at Matrix
Work experience at Matrix Chambers was very insightful. Before hand, I was not sure how barristers would have to prepare for cases and execute them in court, and so, the trips to the Royal Courts of Justice was great to see how it would be done. As well as this, I had the opportunity to talk to a barrister, who gave beneficial advice on next steps to a career in the field of law. This was helpful in understanding the alternative path one can take to go in regards to the route of becoming a barrister.
The mock interview procedure gave myself an idea in how top chambers would approach the procedure of interviewing for a specific role, which was also a great learning curve.
Overall, a fantastic opportunity that was given and a wider view in how to approach the future within the aspects of law!
