Role Description

Week-long virtual vacation scheme involving relevant legal tasks and presentations from representatives of the firm.


  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • Each day we received a task to complete by the end of the day, replicating real tasks that we could expect to receive as a trainee. In amongst our tasks we had overview sessions from the various departments, as well as from diversity and inclusion and responsible business. The day would end with a fun social of some sort, including an escape room and a murder mystery.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I have learnt a tremendous amount from this week, not just about the firm but about the wider fields of law in general. I have also learnt how to structure certain documents and was given the opportunity to use Clarilis.
