I enjoyed the way in which the vacation scheme was organised - everyday you could learn and do something.
Even though you are a vacations scheme student, everyone at the firm makes you feel very comfortable and is very welcoming.
The use of a trainee buddy was particularly good, as you could ask them any questions and they were always willing to help.
I was able to understand more of what is required of you when undertaking the legal work
The feedback was very useful and it allowed you to ensure you improved next time.
Open and friendly atmosphere.
Training session held almost everyday.
I was able to understand the function and wider role of each department.
Very useful, especially regarding the practice areas.
I was able to meet loads of people.
Very good, got to talk to different people of different levels at the firm.
