What our interns say about LGFL

Our internship and mentoring programme is very important to us - and much prized by those who have been on it too. Here's what interns past and present say.

Lois Tackie-Oblie

"Working as a legal assistant at LGFL was, without a doubt, an integral step in my journey to becoming a solicitor. Working alongside 2 highly skilled practitioners in such close proximity enabled me, not only to see the handling of numerous family law matters, but also provided me a great insight into how a legal practice is run.

I look back on my time at LGFL with incredible fondness and I will always be grateful for the time and support that Anne, Rita and the whole team poured into me. I was able to carry out tasks which taught me a vast amount about family law cases but I never felt that I was left too out of my depth.

The whole experience greatly increased my confidence. It was always very interesting when I was able to attend court and I enjoyed being able to sit in on so many client meetings. I appreciated Anne and Rita’s flexibility in my working programme which enabled me to continuing working at LGFL whilst studying for my LPC.

Because of the experience I gained at LGFL, I was I offered a role as a paralegal at a law firm in London. I was then able to undertake my training at the same firm and qualified as a solicitor in June 2016. I now work within the in-house legal team at a charity called The Challenge."
