Home / News and Insights / Insights / The 10,000 Black Interns programme: Meet Temi

Temi

Where did you first hear about the 10,000 Black / Able Interns Programme and what interested you?

I first heard about the programme on LinkedIn through the post of someone who had participated last year. The rare opportunity to partake in prolonged legal work experience that would allow for detailed exposure to a variety of seats piqued my interest. Furthermore, I knew it would be in a firm that celebrates diversity, which is certainly important to me.

What about BDB Pitmans appealed to you before you accepted your internship?

The culture and principles of the firm were clear throughout the application process, which made me feel comfortable and excited to begin working in such an environment. The breadth of practise areas also piqued my interest since I loved the idea of gaining practical experience in a range of sectors that not all city firms have to offer.

What are you most looking forward to about your internship?

As a law student, I am most looking forward to seeing the differences between how the law operates in theory versus how it works in practice. I have already started to see these in my Real Estate seat! I am also excited at the opportunity to immerse myself in the workplace and get a taste of life as a solicitor.

What do you hope to achieve by the end of your placement?

I hope to achieve a valuable and unique understanding of the day-to-day practices involved in being a lawyer and a better idea of the types of skills that are important for me to develop to succeed in practice. I also hope to gain a better understanding of the area of law I would like to specialise in.

How would you describe your first experiences of working in the legal sector?

Challenging, but extremely rewarding. It is fascinating to receive multiple different documents that seem separate but ultimately interconnect and work together. I’ve certainly felt this in my Real Estate seat! I have also been pleased at the fact that you still get to research and learn about the law while practicing, which was a surprise to me!
