I worked in the international practice department of the law firm, it was very good, challenging work and I learned a lot from it. They never expected something I couldn’t provide but it always made me push myself further. The experience has helped me so much because soon I will have to start applying for similar things in UK and this will definitely put me above the others with my application.
