So, for example, in Public Law you may be a children's 'guardian' and you will tell the court about the child's case and explain their wishes and feeling, while also carrying out independent enquiries, and representing the child in court, alongside their appointed solicitor.
Or in Private Law, you could be interviewing families and recommending who a child should live with providing recommendations after an initial hearing which will involve you presenting written and verbal evidence in court, advocating for the child.
