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

During the scheme we were assigned supervisors who were responsible for providing us with work to complete. Upon completion of the work they were always happy to provide as much feedback as possible- good and bad! I felt this greatly benefited my development personally, better understanding my strengths and weaknesses.

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?

During the scheme we were given many opportunities to meet with senior leaders at the firm. As a result we could better appreciate the direction of the firm, its aims and importantly, the values it stood by.

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Extremely. I was able to experience both contentious and non-contentious work whilst at the firm. As a result I now have a better appreciation for which areas of the law I can see myself working in.
