  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

    5/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • My trainee buddy was always available to chat to me about all elements of the firm. My supervisor would also always try to answer my questions fully and would make sure that I had sufficient work to get on with. The trainees in my department also set me work and provided feedback on that which has really developed my understanding of what is expected from a trainee.

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Studying Law at University is very different to working at a commercial law firm and requires a different skill set. However my experiences during my vacation scheme will help me with my LPC and a career in law.
