    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • Best open day I have been on.

    5/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • Very friendly atmosphere. The firm lives up to its reputation.

    5/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • Very supportive.

    5/5

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

    5/5

    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • Schedule for the day was well planned, as are most law firm open days.

    5/5

  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • Great atmosphere. Met some lovely people: both member of the firm and fellow students.

    5/5

  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • As much as I could ask for an open day. Clearly the objective of such days are to provide a more preliminary introduction to the firm.

    5/5

  • 8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • Again, one can only learn so much from one day. But the people at the firm were willing to ask all our questions on life at the firm.

    5/5

  • 9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  • Fairly informative. Though it did not necessarily stand out among other firm open days in this respect. Also, at the risk of sounding pedantic, law firms are not actually companies.

    4/5

  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • The information given would be very helpful to those who are unsure. More informative than most firms.

    4/5

    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • Journey cost 3 pounds and lunch was free. Would have felt bad asking for reimbursements.


  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • Met numerous lawyers and partners. As must usually be very busy, it was nice that they were willing to take time out to talk to us.

    5/5

  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • Not much time for social events per se. But that is because we only had one day.

    4/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • May have been briefly mentioned but was not given great emphasis.

    4/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • Anybody interested in an international law firm should look into these guys.

    5/5
