AM: Present my piece on the

e-commerce sector to the Competition

group's weekly client update/general

know-how meeting.

Finish off my document review.

Lunch: Eat in the staff restaurant with

trainees from my intake.

PM: Asked to draft a power of

attorney to enable us to file the

merger notification on our client's

behalf. Again, find useful precedents

in the internal know-how system -

feel grateful to whoever had to draft

the originals of these.

After work: Most Friday evenings

begin the same way - a drink in the

local pub with a big group of trainees

and some associates. Head off to

meet uni friends for dinner.


AM: Catch up on some general

project management for the

merger notification - proofread

some finalised annexes and send

them to Reprographics to be made

into bundles.

Draft a piece on the European

Commission's final report on the

e-commerce sector inquiry for the

"Best Friends" newsletter.

Lunch: Head to a sushi restaurant to

meet some law school friends.

PM: Quiet afternoon. Follow-up work

from the Law Centre - I'm drafting a

letter before claim. I haven't done one

of these before - but the Pre-action

Protocols are very thorough and I find

a helpful precedent in our internal

know-how system. Coffee with a

friend in the staff restaurant.

After work: Attend a Women's

Network talk with a high-profile

external speaker. Stick around for

post-talk mingling and canapés.


AM: Run to work. Attend a trainee

training session on interpreting

company accounts.

Lunch: Grab a quick lunch and

prepare some notes to present my

piece on the e-commerce sector.

PM: As part of the merger

notification, we have to submit

a selection of the client's board

documents. These have arrived,

so we're allocated batches to

start sorting.

Grab five minutes to sit down with

my supervisor to catch up on some

volunteering work I'm doing with

him - we're applying for funding for

a local youth club.

After work: Stay relatively late to

shift the majority of the documents

I have left - I like leaving on time

on Fridays!
