  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • I sat in the Real Estate Disputes team for my scheme and was given tasks and projects by the department to work on in the short and long term over 2 weeks. Each morning of the scheme 1-2 talks were organised by Graduate Recruitment to give us an insight into working at the firm and the various departments.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I learnt how law departments interact on a day to day basis and communicate with each other particularly with working virtually. I learnt how to serve light obstruction notices and how a case management conference is run. I also learnt how to take a schedule for a witness statement. I developed my client facing skills through drafting letters and emails.
