  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • During the two weeks of the summer scheme, I sat in two different seats. One in one of the firm’s insurance practice and one in a commercial practice. Each day was centred around a different task, with feedback delivered at the end of the day. I also met with numerous members of each department I sat in for virtual coffees, which were a helpful way of learning more about the teams and the firm.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I learned how to review a contract reviews and give advice to negotiate more favourable terms for a client. I honed my skills in drafting client-centred work products. We had a presentation workshop, which provided useful advice to improve my presentation skills. I also conducted legal research and learned how to draft legal memos, case summaries and blog posts around key judgments.
