A week of practical experience, learning from legal professionals with a diverse knowledge of the law. The placement consisted of receiving legal questions and issues, researching them, feeding back to the supervisor and drafting a response. The legal questions and issues were wide-ranging and concerned Penalty Charge Notices, the Community Infrastructure Levy, an Experimental Order, Certificate of Lawfulness, insurance, and planning permission for a major development. Alongside researching and answering questions, I attended a planning committee meeting and a licensing meeting to observe. I also travelled to a planned development site with the relevant authorities looking for concerns and issues that may affect the development. It was an invaluable placement that gave me an insight into local government practice, all from home using technological skills developed during the pandemic.
