The scheme involved a combination of presentations, group case studies and tasks for the team students were sat with. For myself, that involved conducting research, reviewing documents, drafting letters, and other typical trainee tasks.
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.
It was so useful as it has made me much more confident in my career aspirations. It also meant I have gained a much stronger understanding of areas of the law that I hadn’t previously considered as potential areas of interest.
Highly supportive, non hierarchal, friendly, welcoming - truly a one firm, inclusive culture
It exceeded all my expectations.
Culture is the most important thing for the firm. Arrogance does not sit well - BCLP is looking for genuine, down to earth people who work well with others and, essentially, are nice to be around.
