IAFL Cambridge University Travel Studentship 2018
Posted: 05 Oct 2018
Please find a moment to read the report of the winner of the 2018 IAFL Cambridge travel studentship, Alex Clift. Alex travelled to Victoria, Canada and was hosted by IAFL Fellow Trudi Brown.
IAFL are very pleased to hear how much Alex enjoyed this experience:
" The people I met in Canada, both in and outside of the firm, made my experience what it was. Trudi Brown, in particular, in being my host and mentor during the time I spent in Victoria, was not only inspiring as a woman at the forefront of Canadian family law, but became a friend I am sure I will stay in contact with for a long time. This warmth and friendliness was exhibited by everyone I met, which made the work environment refreshing – as a small firm, the essence of Brown Henderson Melbye is collaboration, helpfulness, and kindness. It was an absolute pleasure to work there, and I profusely thank IAFL (especially David Salter, Jo Miles, and Claire Fenton-Glynn for all of their help) for allowing me this opportunity – one which I will never forget."
IAFL would like to echo Alex's thanks in particular to David Salter who set up and has overseen the Cambridge Studentship scheme and Trudi and the BHM Family for being such fabulous hosts!
