  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • Yes - I developed lots of new technical skills that I didn’t have before having come from a non-law background, such as drafting and reviewing. I learnt a whole range of legal terminology and the scheme also helped to develop my interpersonal skills.
