One of my employment cases is concurrently running as a criminal case.
I am helping the Barrister who is running the criminal case with drafting various documents: affidavit and memorandum for discharge without conviction.
Obviously I’m not drafting these documents without any guidance, the stakes are too high for that, although the charges are at a lower level.
But by undertaking the drafting, costs are kept lower. At $500/hr, you want to try and keep time consuming, but relatively routine paperwork to a minimum….enter the law student.
