Registered Conveyancing Technician and Practice Manager, Hannah Lewis, wanted to specialise in conveyancing law, but a law degree was out of the question because her studies had to fit around a full time job and personal commitments. After a lot of research and deliberation, Hannah decided the Level 4 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice (SQA) with MOL offered the flexibility and support she needed.
Hannah joined a successful niche law practice, Anna Arthur & Associates, in 2005 having previously worked in family and matrimonial law departments at two other law firms.
Since joining the business Hannah has worked directly with the owner and principal solicitor at the firm, Anna Arthur. This has allowed her to gain experience in numerous areas of law, which have ultimately helped her decide that property law is the subject she is most passionate about.
As a motivated individual, Hannah was keen to progress in her career and assist her employer at the same time; legislation dictated that Anna Arthur and Associates needed another partner in order to work with certain mortgage providers. After completing her Level 4 course Hannah decided to continue studying and has enrolled on the Level 6 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice with MOL, which will see her become a Property Lawyer, which in turn will help the law practice secure future business from conveyancing clients requiring mortgages.
Hannah said: “I really enjoyed the course, particularly the mock assignments, which I found helpful and insightful. They allowed me to practice for the real things without the associated pressure.
“I also benefited from the webinars, which were delivered by knowledgeable tutors who really understood the subject. I had the opportunity to raise any queries during the webinar, and the content was really well thought out. If I ever felt the need to listen to part or all of a webinar again, I had access to recording online, which was useful.”
When asked what advice she would give to prospective students Hannah said: “I would reassure anyone thinking about studying with MOL that they have the time to complete a qualification and their studies can fit around their lives. MOL’s approach is really flexible and courses are tailored to individual needs.”
