"By the end of the insight, I had no doubt that CC was the place that I want to work at after I graduate. Every other work experience I am undertaking from that moment on has been in order to strengthen my profile so I can work there! It was so informative, not only about the firm but about commerical law in general. It was very useful for someone like me who is from a non-law degree. " Read full review


"Overall, the scheme consisted of talks by all the practice areas, contact with a trainee buddy, and talks about the opportunities in the training contract itself. As well as this, every morning began with a calming social – this included yoga sessions, and focused breathing sessions. In the evenings, there were also some social activities, which was a great way to bond with the rest of my cohort. Another big part of this game were the daily tasks and challenges based on the talks and our reflections." Read full review
