* First year law students, get a taste of ‘life as a solicitor’ at the annual first year legal advice exhibition. The students were given a legal problem to solve, and they had to come up with solutions to the various legal issues posed and give pertinent legal advice, exactly like a solicitor would, to their clients, in this case, their lecturers.
