  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • I was given a total of 5 tasks at the beginning of each week. Some of the tasks came with soft deadlines during the week, but generally I was expected to complete them at my own pace- with feedback provided at the end of each week. The tasks ranged from researching elements of the law, to writing draft submissions.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I very quickly developed a grasp of the practice areas that I was working in- enjoying a lot of contact with my two supervisors, as well as many coffees and meet-ups with members of the two teams. Particularly during my construction seat, I gained an awareness of the different elements in an arbitration, and feel that I am a lot more familiar with litigation work.

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • There was a lot of scope available in talking with current trainees at the firm- with networking events, catch-ups with trainee mentors, and even during social events. The trainees were very open in discussing their experiences in different seats. During presentations during the two weeks, the firm also offered a very holistic description of the different practice areas that make up the firm's key offerings.

  • 4. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • Very open and friendly, with everyone that I reached out to (many lawyers from different teams) responding and finding time to talk to me. I was able to enjoy hour long conversations with partners and senior lawyers, and was able to get to know them on a personal level, and not just about their work.
