Laura McPhail – Summer Clerk 2013/2014
Anderson Lloyd is the best place to begin a career in law. The real advantage of clerking at AL is frequent interaction and feedback with partners, this exposure to experience and skill is so valuable to becoming a successful lawyer. The variety of work was fabulous, I received work from everyone in the office, which kept me on my toes and allowed me to identify the areas I enjoyed and had strengths in. The type of work I did included research, drafting and amending leases, covenants and company documents, attending a relationship property proceeding and collating submissions for resource consent. The people of AL are all extremely lovely and always more than happy to assist. Through people at AL I joined a touch rugby team and a netball team which was great fun. There were lots of social opportunities such as lunches out, young professional events, Friday night drinks and the fabulous Christmas party! I would highly recommend clerking at AL as the smaller intake of summer clerks means an unbeatable personalised experience.
