Skrine Virtual Attachment 2021
The structured attachment programme this year will be conducted virtually and there will be two separate sessions in July and August 2021 during the following periods:
- 5 to 30 July 2021
- 2 to 27 August 2021
Applications for attachment for each session are invited. All applications must be received by 30 April 2021.
Each attachment student will be assigned to a lawyer for the duration of the attachment. The lawyer’s role is to act as a mentor to the attachment student.
The attachment students will be given assignments by email and attend virtual talks organised by the firm on various topics, including the firm’s practice areas, Skrine’s library usage and research skills, professional development talks, and lawyers’ personal experience. We also organise a virtual Internal Moot for our attachment students, to give them an insight into arguing a contentious case.
All this is intended to provide the attachment students with an exposure to the breadth of Skrine’s practice areas and an overview of real practical issues that lawyers deal with in their professional practice. The only difference this year will be that the entire attachment programme will be conducted virtually.
