On the whole very much so. I learnt a lot in the "Business of Law" week and the work during the internship was interesting and often relevant. The people at the firm are all very nice.
I was included in a lot of the social aspect of the firm and the lawyers sitting near me were very friendly and happy to answer questions that I had. I wouldn't say that I felt like part of the firm but that would be hard in only 2 weeks.
I could always ask for support if I wanted it.
I learnt a lot about skills required for being a lawyer but not much that carries across to university life.
Very well structured.
Everyone was friendly and was glad to be there. But you can feel as if you're being constantly assessed.
It's very obvious they have put a lot of time, effort and resources into planning and delivering this internship. The first week in particular had events designed to benefit me as an individual and less as an assessment.
I got to do a cross section of work from lots of different people. Although was very rarely busy with work and didn't work under pressure which will be inevitable in the firm.
Sitting in an open plan office with the lawyers makes it easy to get a sense of the firm's culture.
The work I actually did was interesting but often didn't have much, or any, work to do.
Pay was higher than other internships I've done which, although was not a deciding factor in choosing to undertake the internship, was definitely appreciated.
Graduate Recruitment organised several events and there were events in each department throughout the two weeks.
I found out about what employees could do outside of work but not as much about how much time ws spent undertaking these.
Depends if they were interested in the firm.
