I have also had the opportunity to take on some pro bono cases of my own, which has seen me represent my clients in court. The best way to learn how to be a good advocate is to watch the best and then get on your feet and try it.
I also get the opportunity to work for different divisions of the firm, meaning that I see a broad spectrum of clients and types of disputes. During my seat so far I have worked on arbitration, insurance, real-estate, fraud, banking, and shareholder matters.
It was seeing the tangible impact of my work right in front of me as my client thanked me for my help that made me most proud. We sometimes forget in the legal world how useful our skills can be to ordinary people in their day to day lives. Being reminded of this fact is often a lovely occasion.
