Queen Anne's Sixth Form Student Wins Internship At Hedges Law

Wednesday 11th March 2015

Congratulations to Sixth Form student, Tobi Idowu, who has been announced as one of the four winners in the Hedges Law Winter 2015 Essay Competition. L6 student Tobi’s winning essay focused on whether the voting age should be lowered to the age of 16.

As part of her prize, Tobi will now have the opportunity to participate in a week-long internship with the prestigious law firm, which has offices based in Wallingford and Oxford. In its internship programme, Hedges Law goes above and beyond the normal ‘work experience’ model. Interns are given ‘hands-on’ tasks under supervision from a solicitor, including helping with case-work, attending Court and contributing to marketing/business development initiatives. Time is taken to explain to each intern the context of and background to work carried out at the firm, as well as to give them ad-hoc careers’ advice.

At the formal Prize-Giving Event, held at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford on Thursday 5 March, Tobi was praised for her rigorous discussion of both sides of the argument and an excellent conclusion. The event also included a talk from renowned personal and business coach, Mr Peter Miller-Smith who spoke about “How To Create Your Personal Brand”. Mr Miller-Smith offered a range of advice and top tips on how students can set themselves apart from the crowd when pursuing their chosen career path.
