The summer scheme was a fantastic insight into life at RPC. I really enjoyed the two weeks and got a better understanding on what a career in Law entails.
I was made to feel part of RPC even though I was only there for a short duration. The fee earners were willing to spend time with me and gave me feedback on the work I completed.
Lots of support from support staff and the fee earners.
I learnt a lot on the scheme and will definitely use the skills I gained in the future.
The scheme was really well organised with something on every day. Never a dull moment!
Everyone was very friendly, I felt at home from day one.
We were treated as if we were in the first few weeks of our training contract. The scheme definitely helped me to understand the role of a trainee.
Felt very much part of the culture, getting involved with day to day activities across the firm. Everyone was very approachable and friendly.
Very, I'd like to pursue a career in law.
Free lunches and free breakfasts (between 8:00-8:30) were also provided.
Lots of opportunities to meet with people from across the firm.
Our programme for the two weeks was full of social and networking opportunities. Partners and Associates were very happy to spend time telling me about their experiences at RPC and a career in Law generally.
Yes - many opportunities.
Yes - it was a great experience.
