For this week's award, we thought the following post from @Aquareed was fantastic.

2020-21 Vacation Scheme Applications Discussion | The Corporate Law Academy Forum

It really epitomises what this community is about. We might not always have the exact answer or information someone is looking for, but providing general guidance, tips and advice when you can, is always an approach we want our forum members to take. Well done Aquareed and thank you for your contribution. I hope the premium access is of help to you!
Ah thanks so much!

A day late this week due to the bank holiday, but this week’s winner is @lawnoodle with this post:

https://www.thecorporatelawacademy....cheme-applications-discussion.2732/post-73863

We love posts like this because of their supportive nature through their reassurance and advice.

Well done Lawnoodle and thank you for your contributions to the forum!
Thanks for that, Jessica.

Admittedly, you and others on this forum have helped me feel much more confident in myself in such a short period of time - it's the least I could do! ☺️

Not only was it a fantastic original idea (something we love to encourage among members), but it also really builds on the positive community learning experience TCLA strives to create. Really hope you find the premium resources helpful!

    My winner this week is @AA99 for this open, frank discussion about post-VS rejections. As many will now have realised, I am a massive proponent of genuine self-reflection in all aspects of personal development, including the application process. I think this post epitomises what that is about and really helps others understand more about the value of self-reflection.

    Very well done!

    This week’s winner is @Asil Ahmad.

    Special thanks goes to Asil for starting a thread on a topic and being willing to engage and encourage people to discuss the matter with them.

    For TCLA, we want to encourage people to start commercial discussions or contribute to the forum teams discussions we regularly post. These conversations are important as you can learn and develop your commercial awareness, but at the same time learn from others and see things from different perspectives. Having conversations on these commercial topics is a great way to learn rather than just reciting information you have read from a book/article, as it encourages your own analysis and thinking.

    Thanks again Asil!

    @Jaysen will be in contact about the prize!
