Looking for opportunities as a legal professional

I have recently completed my Bachelor of Laws degree through the University of London International Programmes and also hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree.

I have been employed with a leading law firm of Orr, Dignam & Co. since March 2005 as a Legal Assistant / Paralegal. During this time, I have assisted Partners, and worked closely with Associates, in a wide variety of matters. Particularly, I have spent the last couple of years in developing my legal skills by actually doing the legal work assigned to me from time to time by the Partner of the Firm. This experience has helped me to develop my understanding of the requirements of the profession and has enhanced my familiarity with various laws. It has also given me the opportunity to work as part of a team. I have taken on progressively more responsibilities and have proven that I am a diligent, hardworking, responsible and dependable employee.
