Hello, I Am Laima
I decided to do an apprenticeship because of how independent it enables you to be. Alongside being independent and taking ownership of your study and work, you develop a lot of invaluable experience and get to work with experts in the legal field. Working alongside these experts enables you to learn from them and the mistakes and lessons they’ve learnt through their journey into law. This experience puts you in an excellent position for future employment.

this help I also work in a great team who are always happy to make time and
help me with any problems I may have.
