Spring 2013 will see me embarking on quite an exciting but unusual opportunity.
I will be undertaking a 3 month work placement with a variety of solicitors, barristers and judges in New York.. however I will be doing this all from the comfort of my own home!
Thanks to the wonderful world of Skype and email I will be able to learn new legislation, undertake work, be assessed, draft important documentation and build contacts without even leaving the country.
I will be covering a variety of different legal topics, and I felt that this opportunity was far too good to turn down.
As part of the programme I will be in regular contact with an attorney who will be assessing my work but also providing me with a wealth of opportunities, improving my legal skills and also enabling me to develop my legal knowledge.
I am already excited and will keep you all posted on how things go and will try and do a weekly blog updating you on my work and the assessments that I am doing.
