I really enjoyed the three week vacation scheme at Hogan Lovells. During the three weeks I felt welcomed and supported by everyone I met during the rotation between three departments and really enjoyed the work I became involved with. I also really enjoyed the social and evening events put on as part of the vacation scheme. These really helped all the vacation scheme students to get to know one another which helped make the scheme even more enjoyable.
I enjoyed my placement a lot. As well as being put in three different seats so we could find out all about the firm and its different practice areas, we were also treated to many activities including dragon boating and dinner at the Ivy. While we worked hard during this placement, we also had a lot of fun.
This is an absolutely fantastic firm. I cannot emphasise enough how lovely the people are and how exciting the prospect of working at the firm is now having completed three weeks there. I was given a diverse range of work to complete, as well as the opportunity to meet clients and sit in on conference calls and client meetings. The other students on the scheme and the trainee buddies were equally lovely, a great three weeks.
It was an excellent insight into the work of a city law firm. Everyone was approachable and welcoming and this made me feel at ease. I enjoyed each shadowing session with solicitors and I enjoyed networking with people within the firm. The amount of responsibility that I was given was also very rewarding.
