Role Description

Virtual Summer Internship.


  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • We spent a lot of the time listening to presentations from different employees of the firm, from Trainees to Partners. As well as this, we had allocated time to work on a group project that we had to present on the Friday.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • I have definitely picked up great teamworking and communication skills through conversation with everyone - and learnt how to conduct myself in front of senior management of the firm. It has also assisted me in becoming more punctual and organised throughout the week.

  • 5/5


  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • We were not given much responsibility during the internship besides ensuring that we were on the meetings on time. I believe that this was because we did not have access to DLA technology and therefore, they could not give us masses of actual work for confidentiality and security reasons.

  • Please rate how meaningful the work you were doing was
