Meet Our People


slb-your-career-meet-our-people-pupillage-experience-lee-lyn-ni“One of the many advantages of being a pupil in Shook Lin & Bok is being exposed to different areas of law practiced by leading lawyers in this country. Pupils have the choice to ask for work from their area of interest while being placed under a specific Master to ensure a flexible, yet thorough pupillage experience. During my time as a pupil, I was continually challenged to learn as fast as I could and am therefore grateful for the resources at the firm such as the extensive library and online subscriptions, peer and administrative support, and legal training provided by my seniors and Master.”
