Graduate appointments at one of Wiltshire’s oldest firms

By Anita Jaynes on 23 February, 2015

Law graduates Katherine Arrell and Emily Bourne are new faces at one of Swindon and Wiltshire’s oldest and most established solicitors – Bevirs.

Emily, who’s 22 and a former pupil of the Royal Wootton Bassett Academy, studied law at Swansea University.  While studying she undertook work experience with Bevirs at the company’s office in Royal Wootton Bassett, her home town.

After completing her degree, she approached the company about the possibility of employment and was successful in securing a role. She’s now studying inhouse to become a legal executive  in the private client department. This means supporting clients with legal matters including wills, lasting Powers of Attorney and probate.

Her colleague Katherine, who’s 21, is also a former pupil of Royal Wootton Bassett Academy. Katherine graduated with a first class honours degree in law from the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol.

Katherine became interested in studying law in her teens and won The Excellence in Law Award at the Royal Wootton Bassett Academy for her work – an award sponsored by Bevirs. Emily had won the same award the previous year.

Bevirs has offices in Swindon, Royal Wootton Bassett and Calne. The company is more than 130 years old, making it one of the county’s oldest employers.
