Michelle O’Mahony LLB Law Plus Economics, UL

I completed a student placement with A&L Goodbody, following which I was delighted to be offered a position on the Trainee Solicitor Programme. I completed my first rotation in the Corporate and M&A department where the work was very diverse. I was involved in a number of transactions, including corporate acquisitions and listing companies on the premium stock markets in Ireland and the UK. I will shortly finish my second rotation, a secondment with an American multinational technology company.

This experience was a great learning opportunity as it has given me the opportunity to take on more responsibility and work independently. I've had direct insight into working with an in-house legal department and the chance to see first-hand what our clients look for in their lawyers. I have also developed a greater understanding of our client's business and developed strong relationships with those I have worked with. I would recommend it to any trainee solicitor!
