Rollits onboards two new trainees with local roots

Rollits has taken on two trainees who have completed legal work experience within the firm.  

Harry Milner’s interest in the profession was sparked when he sat in on a high profile murder trial at the Old Bailey during a school trip to London. Aidan Johnson made his career choice after studying law at A-level. 

Both new trainees went to school in Hull and decided to return to the city after attending university elsewhere. 

Harry studied at Hull Collegiate School and then moved to St Mary’s Sixth Form College. He progressed to the University of Leicester where he graduated in 2021 with a degree in law with politics. 

Harry took advantage of some virtual work experience during the pandemic. This cemented his ambitions to pursue a career in law. Before taking up his new post at Rollits he worked for a year at a local sixth form college tutoring and mentoring law and politics students. 

Aidan attended Cottingham High School and St Mary’s College in Hull. He then moved to Northumbria University and studied on the MLaw (exempting) course. This is an integrated master’s degree combining a qualifying law degree with a legal practice course exemption. In his final year, Northumbria University awarded him the “Faculty Pro-Vice Chancellor Award”. Aidan graduated with a first class honours. 

During the summer, Aidan participated in the firm’s work experience scheme and seized the opportunity to join Rollits as a trainee when a training contract position became available.

Caroline Neadley, training principal at Rollits said: “Work experience is so important when it comes to helping young people make decisions about pursuing a career in law and we are delighted that once again our summer programme has identified and supported bright, local talent. 

“We are committed to investing in the future of our lawyers and are confident that they will thrive in our supportive and collaborative environment. We look forward to seeing them grow and develop their careers at Rollits.”
