” Working at LawConnect was a very positive experience. My tasks were varied and engaging: I learnt to draft legal documents, liaise with clients, and handle cases at various stages of litigation. I gained experience with the litigation process in a hands-on and practical manner. Most important of all, I worked under an encouraging and supportive mentor. Ms. Mala Ravindran’s ability to teach and convey legal concepts is matched by her genuine warmth and sincerity. She is an approachable, kind, and patient mentor. She sees the best in her trainees and her clients, and is unparalleled in her sincerity and dedication to her practice. I believe I benefited immensely from her guidance. “

” During my 1-year stint as a Practice Trainee for my Relevant Legal Training (RLT) and my Practice Training Contract, I had the opportunity of working on a variety of different fields of law under the guidance and supervision of an experienced senior lawyer, Ms Mala. Through working on the tasks assigned to me, I was able to hone my research and drafting skills. However small the extent of work given to me, it did not go unrecognised. Ms Mala went to great lengths to take time off from her busy schedule to ensure that I was always on the right track by offering me feedback and advice on my work and how I could better myself to achieve the best results for the firm and most importantly, the clients. My time at LawConnect LLC was a fulfilling and enriching one! “

” My internship experience at Law Connect LLC was certainly an enriching one. I appreciate the fact that we were given the opportunity to carry out tasks at various stages of the proceedings, from taking clients’ instructions and drafting legal documents, to attending court sessions and finalising billing matters. I came away not only with a deeper understanding of the various court processes and procedures, but also a better appreciation of the lawyering skills that are crucial for practice. It certainly helps to have a good mentor in Ms Mala who was always patient with my questions, and whose serendipitous coffee breaks in the afternoons were always a much-welcomed treat! “

“I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to complete my Practice Training at Law Connect LLC with Ms Mala. Ms Mala was a responsible and understanding supervisor. During the course of my training, she provided me with ample opportunities to gain exposure from a broad spectrum of legal work. Conducting client meetings and working with Ms Mala also showed me how dedicated she was as a lawyer, and someone who strives to do her best for her clients. Working with Ms Mala was a pleasant experience and one which I gained from tremendously.”

” I thoroughly enjoyed my time interning at Law Connect LLC and I felt that the experience was very beneficial for me, ………. I had many different tasks to do that allowed me to discover exactly what working as a lawyer would involve. My favourite part of the internship would be the court attendances, as it allowed me to see how each type of court works within Singapore, compared to back home in the UK. I felt very involved with each case that I worked on and would love to return and learn more. “

” During my internship with LawConnect LLC, I gained hands-on experiences ranging from interviewing clients, managing files, accompanying her to court attendances and drafting legal documents. Additionally, I was able to see the process from start to finish, allowing me to understand where my work fits in to the bigger picture. Since I encountered new and unfamiliar cases, I had to undertake research beyond what is taught in school, which was enjoyable for me. My mentor, Ms Mala, was patient in explaining both the legal and practical aspects of her work, and I learnt a lot during my time there. ”

” My experience with you was quite insightful, as it was my first time being in a law firm doing litigation work. One positive about working in your firm was the chance to do actual work. You allowed me to try drafting letters, documents, affidavits and so on. I enjoyed that part of the internship. Secondly, I also appreciated the chance to have a small amount of client contact; that was also instructive. I hope I was able to be of some help to you too. “
