    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • It was very enjoyable, interactive and welcoming. I was given a variety of tasks to do, in order to gain exposure to the work and it was a pleasure to be around everyone.

    5/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • Again, everyone was very welcoming and I did not feel like a spare part or feel like I was being ignored by the busy lawyers (which can sometimes be the case in law firms).

    5/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • I received a lot of support from the Graduate Recruitment team, who were in constant communication with the interns. I also felt that I could ask anyone questions at any time.

    5/5

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • The skills I developed will assist me in my career in the immediate future, as a trainee solicitor, as I was able to practice a lot of the tasks that trainees typically do. In doing so, I honed my drafting, research and presentation skills especially.

    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • Fantastic structure- the induction was a nice, friendly way to get everyone to know each other and ease the interns into the process before the real work started. A full week in each department was sufficient, and the mandatory end of week reviews are really helpful for feedback.

    5/5

  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • Very friendly and welcoming

    5/5

  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

    4/5

  • 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?
  • To a good extent - I was told by my supervisors, that the tasks I was set were the same tasks that trainees are often asked to complete. The opportunity to hear from partners and senior associates in the different practice groups, about their roles, was also useful insight.

    4/5

  • 9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  • We were continuously reminded of the firm's values, and how they are upheld at the firm, the importance of diversity, and the friendly atmosphere. These are all parts of the culture.

    5/5

  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • It was more valuable in affirming my future career path, as I was able to do and get feedback on real work, but I knew before coming to the firm that I wanted to be a commercial solicitor.

    4/5
