My PRIME Week by future lawyer Bashirat Oladele

The four days were so interactive and there were endless opportunities for networking with trainees which gave me the opportunity to learn more about life in commercial law. Whilst there, I learned more about practice areas such as corporate and finance.

I would like to thank Jackie Trench for facilitating an amazing four days and Georgie Court for capturing our fun times at the firm. The week at Clifford Chance consisted of a mock M&A pitch where I played the character of an award-winning deal partner, sessions with barristers from One Essex Court, talks from in house lawyers from Deutsche Bank and the pro bono talks.

The key highlights for me included a talk on ‘Personal Impact’ delivered by Luan de Burgh which I absolutely loved and the inspirational Q&A session with the PRIME alumni – Orin Begum, Hakan Ustabas, Alima Kay and Lewis Barton.

Overall, I enjoyed my time at the firm and learned more about what a career in commercial law entails.
