My job was to act as a legal advisor, write memos, write legal letters, draft legal pleadings, communicate with clients and others, form legal opinions.
Area: Divorce, Custody, Status, Domestic Violence, Guardianship, Unmarried Fathers, Maintenance, Breach of Promise, Common Law Universal Partnership laws, Appointment of Receiver and Liquidator where needed, Post-Divorce, Annulments, Court Orders, and variation and nullification thereto.
I achieved 67% for the Practical Legal Studies subject this formed part of. One of my memorandums was considered useful enough that I was asked to produce a redacted version to be shared with other supervisors by my supervisor, to assist those faced with similar cases.
