Need advice from anyone working in a solicitor's (lawyers, legal secretary's anyone)

(1 Post)

I am about to start a legal secretary course next week which lasts for 1 year. When I went for the interview at the college all the other potential students were school leavers (half my age ). I'm 30 now and would be 31 when qualified.

My question is would you employ a 31 year old qualified legal secretary with no experience, or would you much prefer the young nubile candidate?

I want to know if I am wasting my time doing this course and whether I should look at something else all together. I have no legal experience, although I do have admin experience but I haven't worked in 7 years as have been a SAHM.

TIA
