What are the Best and Worst things about your job?


In Commercial Construction, trainees are given a lot of responsibility. I am responsible for progressing projects and I am in regular contact with outside parties to ensure the projects continue to move forward. I have also taken the lead in negotiations over email in relation to various contracts.

Construction is quite a technical area of law, and as my seat has progressed I have really enjoyed developing my technical knowledge as I have got involved with more complex areas of the law. I have also really enjoyed developing my commercial awareness, thinking about how the commercial practicalities of a building site may affect the drafting of a contract.


Sometimes the role can involve admin tasks, however I'm aware that this is particularly due to lock down. No other negatives about the role!
