    Smart Speaker 

    A smart speaker will be your new best friend when studying something word-heavy. It will act as your personal modern-day dictionary as it allows you to do instant spell checks without having to open yet another tab!

  • 3

    Amazon Kindle 

    A Kindle is essential for anyone studying a word-heavy degree. Save your energy (and money in the long run) by storing all your books in one place. Not only will this make your bag a lot lighter, but it makes switching between modules a lot easier!

  • 4

    Microsoft Office Student

    The Microsoft Office Student bundle is perfect for anyone starting university, regardless of the degree. The majority of coursework will be accepted in the form of a Word document, so this is a great essential for any student.

    McAfee

    No matter the subject, it’s important to keep your tech safe and secure from viruses. The last thing you want is a security threat when you least expect it.

Meet Charlotte, Solicitor for AO

I’m Charlotte and a solicitor for AO World plc.  I studied law at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne and then completed the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in York.  Following my studies and after experience as a paralegal, I qualified as a solicitor at a regional law firm in Manchester and then moved in-house.

 

As an in-house lawyer, I particularly enjoy contract law, intellectual property law and data protection. If ever you do decide to be an in-house lawyer, it is great to have experience in these areas.

If you are studying law, you will also probably hear the words ‘commercial awareness’ quite a lot.  This is a very broad term but involves understanding business and the wider business world…you can get a good start to having commercial awareness by keeping up with general business news and understanding what the current issues are which businesses face.

Charlotte's Tips...

  • 1

    As above, build on your commercial awareness as soon as you can.

  • 2

    Do well in your studies, but also make sure to pursue other interests and hobbies – this will show you are a well-rounded individual who is passionate and committed.

  • 3

    Try not to worry too much about what the future holds (I know that is easier said than done).  Live for the now and just make sure you do your best in whatever you set out to achieve.
