Summer Student feedback on legal skills acquired at MB...
Karen: Form and draft legal opinions on liability, damages, and recommended settlement figures, for client consideration.
Cassandra: Various aspects of examination of discovery, including the art of forming direct and substantive questions.
Marla: Enforcing a writ of seizure intra-provincially.
Victoria: Best practices for mediation, including the art of preparing persuasive briefs that make it likely that the matter will settle favourably.
Shayan: Various facets of trial preparation, including preparing documents that highlight and apportion liability.
Tiffany: Draft motion records to amend a Statement of Claim, for production from a non-party with leave, to dismiss an action and to set aside a noting in default.
We have no doubt that the legal skills that we have acquired this past summer will serve us well when we return to the firm as articling students.
