Next Post

Catrin Jones - Paralegal at Vines Legal family lawyer in ChesterfieldCatrin started working at Vines Legal as a Paralegal in August last year, after completing an undergraduate degree in Law at the University of Derby. Alongside her work at Vines, she is currently undertaking her Legal Practice Course and master’s degree in law, also at the University of Derby. The 2-year course consists of most Saturdays spent at University alongside 4 days a week working and a study day. Catrin has a packed but thoroughly enjoyable schedule!

“Working at Vines Legal alongside my studies is busy, but well worth it,” explains Catrin. “I am able to put everything I learn into practice, applying theory to my work every day. If there’s anything I want to delve deeper into with regard to my studies I am in the perfect place to learn from those I work with; there’s always help if I need it. It’s such a valuable way of learning. Not only do I get a good grasp of all the basics, but I also get to put that basic understanding into both practice and theory. Supporting the other solicitors as a Paralegal is just the perfect way to learn.”

Catrin decided on a career in law after spending her gap year in Australia and talking to friends about their own career goals. “I’ve been told that I’m really good at looking at situations from many different angles and getting my point across in an effective way. So, for me, law seemed like a great way to use those natural skills and develop them further.”

During the 3rd year of her undergraduate degree, Catrin embarked on a volunteering role in the University Student Legal Advice Centre, primarily focussed on family law. “I really enjoy the personal aspect of family law,” explains Catrin. “It’s nice to be able to get to know the person involved face to face, and actually see who I am helping. I enjoy working through the process and seeing the result at the end. Often people’s lives will be very different and it’s incredibly rewarding to be able to help them through what are often tough situations.”

Catrin is looking forward to her future career at Vines Legal, focussing on completing her training and becoming fully qualified. Speaking of Vines Legal and her future ambitions, Catrin said: “It’s fantastic to be part of a vibrant, growing law firm. I am surrounded by great people who inspire me and allow me to imagine where I could be career wise in a few years. Everyone gets on so well and the atmosphere is supportive and welcoming. It’s definitely my ambition to stay at Vines and progress my career.”
