I had a brilliant time on the RPC Summer Scheme. The work I was given was very varied and interesting. I was given more responsibility than expected and was always kept busy!

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

I felt very valued during my time on the scheme. Everyone I interacted with was very welcoming and I really felt like part of the firm.

I really appreciated the fact that senior members of the team had taken time out of their schedules to provide me with very detailed feedback, insight into their roles and to also speak to me about my wider career aspirations.

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

We were assigned a trainee buddy and a supervisor (Partner/Legal Director/Senior Associate).

My supervisors were often very busy, but wider members of the team were also very supportive.

4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I was able to see how smaller tasks fit into the 'bigger picture' and learnt about the practical realities of being a lawyer.

The work given was challenging and really pushed me out of my comfort zone.
