Any advice?

In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one magic circle trainee-to-be is looking to get some experience in lawtech.

“I have the following career conundrum I’d appreciate some advice on: How can I, as someone starting the LPC in August then a TC in February at a magic circle firm, do some work through June and July to skill myself up? As a law undergrad I’m particularly interested in legaltech, coding, and blockchain applications.”
