SOPHIE MILNE

2020 Winner and Student from East Anglia

Prize from Fieldfisher

"Competing in BIUCAC 2020 increased my understanding of the fast-changing business world and provided an opportunity for me to develop interests in various sectors through the research I carried out. Participating in the final was both challenging and rewarding as I pushed myself to learn more about the implications of economic, social and political trends on clients and how, as a lawyer, I can assist my clients to achieve their commercial objectives. I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to present directly to partners of some of the leading law firms in the world."

JAKE CHADWICK

2020 Runner Up and Student from Lancaster University

Prize from BCLP

"Competing in BIUCAC 2020 illustrated to me the importance of thoroughly understanding legal commercial awareness. At the same time, it massively developed my knowledge of the business and finance world and challenged my presentation, communication, and research skills. Moreover, getting the opportunity to demonstrate my legal commercial awareness knowledge directly to partners of some of the leading law firms in the world was an unparalleled opportunity – and thanks to it, I’m incredibly excited to be undertaking work experience and mentoring directly from BCLP!"
