Practice groups, sectors and choosing your rotation adventure
Choosing a practice group for your clerkship or graduate rotations can feel overwhelming. How will your chosen path compare with uni study? Where can you get more information to weigh up the options? What if the reality doesn't match up with your expectations (read: cutting deals like an episode of Suits)? In this episode, Mel and Tahlia are joined by Senior Associate Tina Tran and Lawyer Tim Alice, who share their experience of choosing rotations and how those choices play out in practice. Tina and Tim also explain the difference between practice groups and sectors and how they impact day-to-day work.
Some of the questions we discussed
- What is the difference between practice groups and sectors?
- How does the sector group you're interested in feed through to your practice?
- How do different practice groups and sectors interact with each other on a matter?
- How did you choose your practice group rotation and what advice do you wish you had received?
