My summer at Clark Wilson has been a valuable experience that I will look back at fondly. I am pleasantly surprised by the genuine support I received from everyone at Clark Wilson, and particularly the comradery I’ve found amongst the students. The lawyers and staff took the time to ensure that I was continuously learning and gaining new experiences.

During my summer, I have had the opportunity to do a variety of work amongst a variety of practice areas. I was able to witness estate planning meetings and the signing of a trust deed. I reviewed a contract that was longer than any book I’ve ever read, and did research that gave me insight into areas that I previously knew nothing about. Most excitingly, I had the opportunity to speak in Chambers. I am looking forward to returning to Clark Wilson next year for my articles!
