Christina Clare

My name is Christina Clare and I am currently studying the LPC at the University of Law, Birmingham. The induction day was hosted by Barclays and held at their headquarters in the awe-inspiring Canary Wharf, London. Just walking into the venue wearing a brand new suit made me feel incredibly privileged to be a part of the Legal Launch Pad. Within minutes of meeting the other participants I knew the whole day would be enjoyable due to the friendly and approachable nature of all those involved. Each session was delivered by such down to earth and motivating individuals who clearly recognised and appreciated the challenges faced by ethnic minorities attempting to enter the legal profession. They shared their powerful anecdotes highlighting the various obstacles they had overcome, which honestly made me appreciate that we are all able to attain a great deal if we focus and put our minds to whatever we want to achieve.

The most important part of the induction day was learning that I not only need to assess my own strengths and carry these forward, but I also need to embrace the various aspects that will encourage my self-development. The majority of the content covered during the induction day provided me with the confidence I needed to address these areas head on allowing me to build upon my legal career aspirations. My favourite part of the day was the talk given by Solomon Wifa. His highly influential talk stressed the importance of not being afraid to believe in your own strengths and abilities by using these to your advantage. As one of the youngest ever Managing Partners of a global sized firm, he was incredibly engaging in terms of the way he expressed himself. I could really sense that he had been on an invaluable journey in order to reach the highly successful position he was now in.

The networking event at the end was a great way to end such an insightful and informative day. With a room full of successful and inspiring individuals I was spoilt for choice in terms of who to speak to. Upon leaving Canary Wharf I realised that attaining a successful legal career was certainly possible which meant I could discard any lingering feelings of self-doubt that we all suffer from, from time to time. This induction day was a fantastic way to commence such a dedicated programme that provides so much for all those involved. Having learnt so much in only one day, I now feel ready and confident to face anything. Bring on the next training session!

Christina
