We were given trainee-style tasks from a different practice area each day. Tasks were generally engaging and gave a good insight into the firm and the work of trainees.
The placement was a great opportunity to develop legal and commercial skills like drafting documents, proof-reading, and analysing information.
The placement also functions as an assessment to acquire a training contract. We had talks from various people within the firm and had plenty of opportunities to ask questions about the role and the opportunities available.
The culture was outstanding. At no point did I feel like I couldn’t ask questions from supervisors about the tasks. The staff were all really friendly and helpful, which made a huge difference to the experience.
I enjoyed the placement very much. It was well organised and staff had clearly gone to great lengths to make sure it was enjoyable for everyone.
Focus on doing well on the assessments and interviews, but also show your personality. Staff want to get to know you as people so make sure you put yourself forward.
