We took part in a number of sessions including a pro bono session, trainee spotlights, a trainee panel, a SQE session and an application and interview advice session. We also completed some work on forage which involved drafting a contract, due diligence, writing an email of advice and a commercial awareness task.
* Strategic thinking * Commercial analysis * Risk analysis * Client correspondence
Understanding the business helped me to gain a head start and also have a number of interesting points to talk about during interviews which would allow me to stand out.
Everyone was laid back and friendly
I throughly enjoyed hearing from trainees, associates, partners, and managing partners to really gain an understanding of what it is like at all the different levels of the firm.
Make the most out of every opportunity and make sure you network with everyone you meet after the event.
