Here at Regan Peggs Solicitors we are fortunate to be regularly joined by interns from Birmingham City University. This instalment of the Intern’s Diary is written by one of them, Maria Pantziarou, about her time on 31st of October 2018.

Today I came into the office and as usual I checked my emails and prioritised my tasks for the day. I had two main projects for the day.
My first project concerned the next stage in the judicial review case that I worked on last week, and which I wrote about here. Since last week, the High Court has returned to us stamped copies of the application. My job was to take these copies, and serve them on the Magistrates’ Court and Crown Prosecution Service. The copies had to go with bundles of our evidence, which I had collated last week. I also had to complete a certificate of service. Collating and sending these papers is time consuming – it has to be done perfectly.
The second main project of the day was to work on a drink driving case, in which our client denies failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis, and puts forward a medical defence. I put together an application for our client’s medical records, which we will use to support her defence.
Overall it was an educational and busy day.
