"Given the need to move the vacation scheme online due to COVID, the Latham summer scheme was held on InsideSherpa. We got a very good insight into the various practice areas of the firm. Each practice area talks were digestible and followed with a Q&A where you can ask questions. Whilst it is not possible to get real client work due to us working remotely, we got a very good taste of the life as a trainee with the tasks we were assigned with." Read full review
