Very useful and enjoyable insight into the firm and its work. The work was varied and representative of what a trainee at the firm would complete.
Very much so. Everyone I spoke with took time out of their day to chat and answer my questions. My supervisor in particular was incredibly supportive.
I received lots of support during the scheme. I was given practical and actionable feedback on my work which I was able to use moving forward. My supervisor would answer any questions I had as I was going along.
Learnt a lot about the wider legal industry which will assist me if/when I apply for new positions. Received lots of feedback on my work which I've learnt from and will make me a much better candidate in the future.
The scheme worked very well. We were given a pre-joining workshop which was useful. Various talks and workshops throughout the day, as well as social events in the evening, provided some useful structure.
Very relaxed non-competitive environment where we were encouraged to build relationships with other scheme-attendees and with others inside the firm.
Lots of time was given to improving the practical skills that each attendee developed. The firm was also interested to see us develop our own personal brand.
Very good insight; the work was representative of what a trainee at the firm would be given.
Huge focus on the company culture (which is amazing). The group project focused entirely on the culture of the firm and was therefore useful.
Very useful experience which affirmed my desire to work at a commercial law firm. Great experience moving forward which will improve my standing as an applicant.
The compensation is more than adequate and is in line with other top law firms.
Everyone was happy to dedicate time to answering questions and getting to know each other better.
Interesting and fun speed networking event.
Yes, big focus on the trainee business blog (there was actually a competition for blog post submissions)
Great experience which I would definitely recommend to anyone seeking a career in commercial law.
