- Former Henley College and University of Reading Student Enjoying Training Contract
Former Henley College and University of Reading student Sophie Clark is enjoying life as a trainee solicitor at Blandy & Blandy LLP, which has offices in both towns.
Sophie gained A*AA in her A Levels at the College in 2013, before going on to study Law at the University of Reading where she gained a 2:1. Sophie was previously a pupil at Langtree School in Woodcote.
Sophie is mid-way through her first seat in the firm’s Probate, Tax & Trusts team, with trainee solicitors completing a total of four seats over a two year period before qualifying.
She said: “Knowing the town well and having spent two years at Henley College, it’s nice to spend time working alongside (senior solicitor) Louise Nelson and other colleagues at Blandy & Blandy’s Henley office.”
“I applied for a training contract at Blandy & Blandy because of its fantastic reputation in the area and diverse range of work. The staff have been enormously welcoming and supportive and I have been encouraged to get hands on from an early stage. I am certain that by training at Blandy & Blandy I will be very well set up for my future career as a solicitor.”
Caroline Casagranda, a partner in the team, added: “Sophie has settled well into the firm over the last four months. She is a hardworking and enthusiastic team member who is always willing to help whenever required.”
Sophie has since returned to both the College and the University to share her experience and insights with students considering a career in Law.
