  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • While I required my work to be checked by a qualified solicitor as I have not yet gained this qualification myself, I managed my own workload and was involved in a variety of projects. I had the opportunity to manage my own project and present findings back to a panel who then provided me with valuable feedback. I felt I had a lot of responsibility which was very motivating.
