I really enjoyed the insight; it gave me a good and detailed overview of each legal group and the opportunity to meet a lot of inspiring and motivated people.
My associate and 'parent' for the week of the Work Experience Scheme really made me feel as part of the team.
My associate was always willing to explain and readily answered the questions I had during the week.
The insight was very well structured with many talks, projects, activities and social events planned for the Work Experience Scheme students.
The firm spent a lot of time organising talks for us such as "what does it take to become a good commercial lawyer" which really helped in our personal development.
By giving us opportunities to listen to talks by associates and partners of the different legal groups and opportunities to talk to the associates and trainees during social events, the insight really helped me understand what working at the firm would be like.
Having the opportunity to talk to the partners, associates and trainees helped me understand the friendly and warm work culture at Slaughter and May.
The lunches between talks, a firm dinner and a welcome drinks reception presented many opportunities for networking.
