About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

This is a great vacation scheme. The staff are very friendly, and the quality of the work is very high. You really feel that the firm invests in your time there, so you get a lot out of it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in city law.

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

The HR team put on a full schedule for the vac schemers, including presentations and socials, so you get the impression that the firm really wants you. You will often be taken out for lunch by the trainees, and you can always meet up for coffee with other lawyers.
