Amber Turner, IAFL studentship winnerIn August, Amber Turner of Pembroke College travelled to Boston, Massachusetts, as a winner of an IAFL Mills and Reeve Travel Studentship. Amber was hosted by IAFL Fellows Anne Berger of Berger and Small and Jeff Soilson of Fitch Law Partners LLP.

Reflecting on her experience, Amber said:

"I cannot express my gratitude to the IAFL and Mills & Reeve for funding the studentship, to Caitlin Jenkins who supported me through the entire process of organising my trip, and to the members of the Cambridge Faculty of Law who facilitate this programme and who were responsible for inspiring my interest in family law in the first place. Furthermore, a simple ‘thank you’ is not enough for Jeff and everyone at Fitch who gave me the opportunity to see the inner workings of a Massachusetts firm and made me feel so welcome, or for Anne and her entire family who were the best hosts I could ask for. But it will have to do for now!

This was honestly the most rewarding experience of my life, and I would encourage anyone with an interest in family law who has the opportunity to apply for this programme to do so."
