The summer clerkship was one of most incredible experiences I have ever had. I felt comfortable and a part of the firm very quickly. I was given more legal work than I expected and within the first couple of days I was given real responsibility. The summer delivered everything that I had expected and more.
I am leaving the firm feeling that I have learnt more about the law in three months than I have in an entire year at University. I have undoubtedly improved my communication skills and developed my technical legal skills, such as writing and research.
