A LAW firm is giving students a helping hand into the industry.

Irwin Mitchell invited four youngsters from Thomas Rotherham College to experience a week of life at its busy Sheffield office.

Jack Rhodes, Alicia Dimberline, Jack Bell and Natalia Golawska shadowed employees from a variety oif departments at the firm to gain experience and a better understanding of the legal sector.

Sinead Hayes, personal injury solicitor said: “The work experience scheme we is really important for young people looking to get into law, as in the past it was very much a case of ‘who you know’ in terms of getting good quality work experience in the legal sector.

“No matter what background a person comes from, all students should be entitled to get experience of their chosen career.”
