    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I really enjoyed this placement. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, a lot of effort had been put into making sure the interns had enough to do. There were lots of workshops, talks and the right amount of social events. I learned a lot, got a good insight into the industry and had fun.

    5/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • It was more work experience than placement. Because law is so technical there was little that could be given to us in terms of responsibility but we were responsible for making sure that we did a decent job of what was given to us.
