This was a really useful experience. Each week, I was given a set number of tasks. I was responsible for managing my time and prioritising in order to complete all the tasks ahead of the deadline. I also had the opportunity to get involved with real client work, including attending a hearing and preparing for a client presentation.
I completed a number of research tasks using Practical Law. This helped me to develop my research skills. I also gained experience drafting a witness statement, writing a case note, taking notes at a hearing and writing a blog.
There were several informative presentations and lots of question-and-answer and networking opportunities.
Everyone at the company was incredibly friendly. I received so much support throughout the scheme and everyone was always willing to answer any questions or help me. The working environment is supportive, inclusive and welcoming.
I really enjoyed the vacation scheme. I learnt so much, developed so many new skills and received invaluable training.
Don’t be afraid to ask any of the supervisors or trainees for help, everyone is so friendly and supportive!
