  1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

  2. 9/10

  3. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  4. The small intake size allowed us to get well-acquainted with the Graduate Recruitment team. Lawyers at the firm were also very forthcoming in meeting with us informally and making us feel welcome.


  5. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  6. Despite the short length of the scheme, we were given numerous touchpoints with the firm i.e. Graduate Recruitment, trainee buddies, mentors, all of whom were highly responsive.


  7. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  8. The scheme provided insights into the daily work of my selected practice group, and how the firm operates as an organisation.


  9. How well structured was the insight?
  10. The timetable struck a good balance between formal programmes and downtime for us to complete assigned tasks, and organise our own engagements.


  11. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  12. Welcoming and fun.


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

  14. 9/10

  15. 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?
  16. We were exposed to firm employees from a comprehensive range of practice groups and levels of seniority.


  17. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  18. We were able to learn about the firm's values both from lawyers in senior management, and anecdotes on how these were put into practice from the other firm employees. I was definitely able to witness Latham's culture on a much deeper level than I would have simply by perusing third-party sources.


  19. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

  20. 9/10

  21. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

  22. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  23. Firm employees were very accommodating in organising informal networking chats and engagements.


  24. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

  25. 9/10

  26. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

  27. 9/10

  28. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

  29. 10/10

  30. In addition to these questions, is there any extra information you would like to leave about your experiences on your work placement that other students may be interested in?
