It was a brilliant couple of weeks, with each week spent in a different department. There were many opportunities to get involved in the work that the firm carries out, but also invites to socials and conferences. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and it felt as though I was immersed in the culture of the firm.
The insight was very enjoyable and consisted on a series of hands on challenging tasks. By completing work that was actually of relevance to the firm I felt the insight was genuinely effective in confirming my preference to Irwin Mitchell. By being included in team meetings as well as trainee socials I feel my insight was extremely effective.
I thoroughly enjoyed the insight. There was always plenty of exciting research and tasks to be completed. The training sessions that were provided were very interactive and provided valuable information to help us. The team was very friendly and were keen to get to know us and find out our career aspirations.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 8 week internship at Irwin Mitchell. I was able to get a real insight into the working day of a solicitor, and was able to confirm to myself the areas of law that I want to go into. I was given a good amount of responsibility and was allowed to draft important documents and attend client meetings etc.
