Imagine your whole life has led to this moment. Since high school you knew what you wanted to be and you’re finally here – day one of your life as a qualified lawyer. Your stiffly pressed shirt smells of starch and not a hair is out of place. But deep down, the butterflies can’t be settled; your clammy hands can barely grip the rail of the courthouse steps and the sick fear of the unknown takes over.
It’s your first day in court, but something is missing. It’s the crucial practice you needed to become fluent and confident in presenting a client’s case – in an environment where you could make mistakes and learn, rather than be judged on them, literally!
