Skills

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

I have learnt more about the options to practise as a solicitor within commercial law. We were also given first-hand practice to apply our skills to an ADR workshop. This was also a good networking opportunity to meet professionals in the sector already and peers from other universities.
