Here at The College of Legal Practice, we know a little about becoming a solicitor, but for some of us it has been some time since we practised! So, we asked Law with Sophie to guest write a series for you on becoming a solicitor. These are the first three articles in the series, look out for the next three looking at the routes to qualification and qualifying working experience.
