    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • The Vacation Scheme was amazing. My day normally started with a presentation on a practice area that the firm has. After that I would have various tasks to complete for my supervisor on the particular seat that I chose to sit in. We would also get insight into the SQE exam and we had various virtual socials. All in all, it was excellent.
