Legal first-year scheme.
The scheme included loads of different sessions. Being able to interact with A&O’s business on so many different levels was engaging
Everyone was very friendly and accommodating.
I never felt like I did not know what I was doing
I learnt a lot about A&O’s business and the kind of lawyers that they are looking for
Us being brought back for the return visit was good, added longevity to the programme.
I got on really well with GR, trainees and my fellow A&O First candidates
We had sessions on commercial awareness and I got to do some work shadowing which I learnt loads from
The insight gave me a good understanding of this. And any queries I do have, I know who to ask as a result.
The friendly culture at the firm was apparent all throughout.
The Fuse presentation was a highlight; sets A&O apart from many of the firms
There were two networking lunches which were a pleasure to be involved in
I got to know a lot of the other candidates well as well as GR
There was a pro bono talk; GR also went through all the other opportunities available besides from few earning
It was such an enjoyable first year scheme to be on. Highly informative too
