Intern’s Diary – Maria Pantziarou (7)

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 14th of November 2018.

Today as usual, I came in the office and checked my emails task list.

Gemma was working from elsewhere today, so Regan helped my with my tasks in the morning.  In the afternoon, I was left to run the office, as Regan attended a police station interview.

The first task for today was to write a letter to Birmingham Magistrates’ Court and ask for a trial date to be set for one of our clients who has been  charged with the offences of using a mobile phone and not wearing a seatbelt whilst driving.  I had to consider the evidence in the case, and Regan helped me to decide which witnesses would need to be at court for cross examination.

After that, I had to send some important information to a barrister’s clerk about a High Court case involving the breach of an injunction.  Then I worked on another High Court case – a Judicial Review.    In that case, I worked on obtaining our client’s medical records.

Another of my tasks involved contacting Birmingham Magistrates’ Court about a speeding case, again inviting the court to adjourn the case so that Regan can attend with the client.

Overall it was a full day and I managed to complete all of the tasks I had to do today.
