The vacation scheme involved a series of talks from each of the practice areas, along with research tasks that we had to complete. It also involved more informal social events.
Developed my skills for communication in a virtual setting. Ability to use Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
It was informative to gain a wider insight into the different practice areas. As someone who came from a non-legal background, I felt that the vacation scheme was more suited to people who had already gained legal experience.
The company culture was very friendly and helpful. Everyone was very willing to answer follow up questions and hand out emails for follow up discussions.
I enjoyed it a lot. Had I had more legal experience, I think I would have got more out of the scheme. Many of the tasks we were asked to do presupposed that you had already studied law, and were difficult to complete if you had'nt done do.
I would advise others to apply to Gateley Legal if they had already studied law. On the vacation scheme, I would recommend that they talk to as many people as possible and be proactive.
