  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • I sat in two departments over the three weeks, undertaking trainee tasks and sitting in on departmental and client meetings. We were also given a pro bono task to complete over the three weeks, as well as a group client pitch presentation exercise which we conducted in the final week. We also had many departmental presentations and networking events, as well as social events.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I learnt a lot more about the profession generally. We had a presentation skills session which developed my confidence and ability to present. I also improved my communication skills through communicating with a wide variety of people. I developed my collaboration skills through the various team exercises (pro bono and client pitch exercise). I improved my networking skills also.
