Go the extra mile

Go the extra mile

By Aleksandar Kovaceski


Consider taking responsibility for your legal career development by finding practical experience in unlikely places. With so many law students graduating from universities it has become essential to obtain practical legal experience during your studies to stand out from the crowd. However, finding such experience can be difficult given the scarcity of opportunities. With that in mind, law students may wish to consider the following unorthodox methods of finding practical experience. Always pick the practical option Given that most law students are not only studying but also working, all law students should undertake practical legal training subjects regardless of the area of law. It provides an opportunity to gain experience while also completing a course requirement during their studies. While undertaking my Juris Doctor degree at RMIT University, I did clinical legal training as a subject and was placed at the Mental Health Legal Centre for a semester. This proved to be an invaluable experience for my development because I had never had any prior experience with any law firm or legal clinic, which may be the case for many law students.
