I had the opprotunity to work on a broad range of deals and transactions, and I was trusted to contribute to important parts of it.
Having done placements before coming to CMS, CMS was by far the best experience I had. There were a number of reasons for this. Firstly the scale of the firm and the type of work I was exposed to. Secondly, the fact that the scheme was so well organise...
First hand contact with real cases and big clients helped me understand the context of commercial law a lot better and engage in challenging tasks. The socials and buddy scheme worked well such that I never felt lost or scared to ask questions.
I got to sit with a senior associate and to attend to many presentations about the firm, so this was an excellent insight to the firm.
Excellent. Plenty of work sent my way.
Everyone has been extremely friendly and welcoming. I have been given a variety of interesting tasks and also had the opportunity to enjoy the social side.
The second week was much better than the first week which felt to drag slightly. Once we had the social on the Thursday, the group of vacation schemers were more sociable and this helped increase the enjoyment of the two weeks.
A truly enjoyable experience.
absolutely amazing job, genuinely
It helped give me a good idea of what life as a trainee may be like.
I found the insight extremely enjoyable as it provided me with a true insight into the firm's practice areas and culture. The placement definitely consolidated my desire to work at CMS Cameron McKenna.

Fantastically managed, great balance of informative presentations with 'real-life' work and deadlines.
The vacation scheme is as much aimed at helping you get to know the firm as the firm getting a good assessment of you.
Interesting variety of work, lovely and accomodating people, not left to own devices too much.
