IAFL Mills & Reeve Cambridge Studentship 2019
Posted: 26 Sep 2019
In August of this year, IAFL Fellows Anne Berger of Berger and Small and Jeff Soilson of Fitch Law Partners LLP hosted the winner of the 2019 IAFL Mills & Reeve Travel Studentship. Amber Turner of Pembroke College, Cambridge University, England embarked on her first transatlantic trip to Boston, Massachusetts, USA and throughly enjoyed the experience:
"I cannot express my gratitude to the IAFL and Mills & Reeve for funding the studentship, to Caitlin Jenkins who supported me through the entire process of organising my trip, and to the members of the Cambridge Faculty of Law who facilitate this programme and who were responsible for inspiring my interest in family law in the first place. Furthermore, a simple ‘thank you’ is not enough for Jeff and everyone at Fitch who gave me the opportunity to see the inner workings of a Massachusetts firm and made me feel so welcome, or for Anne and her entire family who were the best hosts I could ask for. But it will have to do for now!
This was honestly the most rewarding experience of my life, and I would encourage anyone with an interest in family law who has the opportunity to apply for this programme to do so."
IAFL would like to echo Amber's thanks to Anne, Jeff and all who assisted for being such wonderful hosts!
