I arrive at the office and, after making a cup of tea, start checking my emails. I also compile the first draft of my “to-do-list” which will be subject to continual revision throughout the day..


My supervising partner runs through my to-do list with me and gives me instructions on several new tasks that I will need to carry out this week. I use this opportunity to raise any questions that I may have with my work. 


I attend a department meeting. As a department we have regular meetings at which the team can discuss workloads, ask for help with particular problems, plan networking events and have a general catch up. It is essential for the team to communicate regularly, especially in a busy department.


We are acting for a tenant who is keen to determine their lease. A break notice must be served on time, so it is important that it goes out today. I make sure to draft all the necessary documentation early in the day, so that it can be checked and returned to me for editing, prior to my sending it out.
