Elizabeth‘s professional bio / interests
BA Modern Foreign Languages student (French, Spanish) about to enter my third year at the University of Durham. I am a hardworking, organised, and ambitious individual currently seeking an opportunity to develop my skills and experience in part-time roles alongside my academic studies, with later aspirations to transfer my linguistic skill and cultural awareness to the work environment of an international law firm. I have experience in working in both the UK and internationally to help with my language fluency, which has also boosted my communication skills and confidence, and has allowed me to adapt well to working with new people in different environments, be it foreign or familiar. Additionally, I have experience working within the legal sector in a law firm, which has helped with my organisation team-working skills. To reinforce my knowledge of and refine my experience in the legal space, I have attended many insight days and completed several virtual internships on Forage.

breaking through into the legal sector and gaining some international experience. Despite not coming from a law background, I am eager to transfer my linguistic competencies and cultural awareness to the legal workspace in order to put my skills to practice in an environment that engages with wide-ranging issues.
