I had a great time and learnt so much about the firm and what it might be like to work as a trainee.
I had lots of catch up calls with lawyers and graduate recruitment. There a lot of opportunities for feedback, which made me feel like the firm cared about out development.
A lot of communication about the tasks and structure of the scheme. A chat service was used for any questions, which was helpful to the whole group.
Helped me differentiate between different practice areas and the style of work I would prefer. Networking virtually is another skill I developed.
Very well structured and a lot of clear communication from the firm about changes in light of COVID which was reassuring and helped me prepare.
Really friendly and collaborative. The socials like a virtual cooking class and virtual yoga over zoom were really fun and brought the group together.
We had a pre-scheme social with the Smarty Train which prepared us with little hacks about working life and tips on how to adjust to a virtual format.
The tasks on InsideSherpa involved a good level of challenge and the fact we had to prioritise a lot reflected real life.
The virtual social sessions helped a lot and we had talks from the pro-bono team, community outreach team and the different Diversity networks, including the Global Inclusion Lead.
Really helpful, outlined the different potential next steps.
Many opportunities before, during and after the 3 day scheme.
Informal speed networking, virtual live cooking class with a professional chef, virtual live yoga session with a professional instructor.
We had talks from the pro-bono, community outreach and diversity networks and spoke to the trainee committee about social events they have been involved in
