    Why would you prefer to be a secretary as opposed to a lawyer or someone in HR/recruitment?

    I think it requires a passion for the role and good organisational skills as well as interest in law but not needing to be the person who does any of the active legal stuff like directly advising clients.

    I did a vac scheme with a magic circle law firm. Do you mean a paralegal type position or personal assistant secretary?
