    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • The work given to us was challenging and important for the lawyers concerned. The extra curricular tasks also showed a real intent to immerse us in the firm's culture and give us an understanding or the core values of RPC.

    5/5

  • as much was was required.

    4/5

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I knew nothing of the insurance industry before. Given that it is such a vast UK market the knowledge gained will be useful. I don't intend to practice in either area I sat at RPC.

    4/5

    5/5

  • 8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • As well as could be expected in two weeks. Could have involved the vacation schemers in the firm's social side more e.g. encourage them to join 5 a side team.

    4/5

    5/5

  • Already knew I wanted to do law but helped me realise I didn't want to do insurance sector work.

    4/5

    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • I was fortunate to stay with family but I know some people struggled financially with living in London on the rate paid.


  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • Plenty.

    4/5

  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • Enjoyable and effective.

    4/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • Possibly but the emphasis wasn't here. We had our own extra curricula activities attended by lawyers, not RPC's own events.

    4/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • Definitely.

    5/5
