“Chapman Tripp is a large and prestigious firm and that much has been obvious throughout the clerkship. I have met a lot of people who are leading in their fields and I have learnt a lot of skills and knowledge in a very small timeframe. The opportunity to work in a place like this early in my career is one I am very grateful to have had.”Helena WisemanSummer Clerk
