"Various legal presentations. I've also undertaken soft skills training such as networking and effective speed reading."
First year trainee, London
"First year trainees have lunchtime training sessions to introduce the different departments in the firm. After that, there are external training sessions such as the INN group seminars and internal know-how meetings."

"Training is very good. We have access to lots of talks; associates and partners take development reviews seriously; we also often get given tasks pushing us to learn/improve and feedback to refine."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm collaborates with some other firms in the area to provide training such as talks on different topics by barristers. Some talks are very useful and interesting. We also do four electives on the professional skills course and there is additional firm specific training at the start of the training contract. Would be good if we had a precedent bank assisted by a professional support lawyer, but as we are a small intake it's easy to ask other trainers whether they have come across a particular precedent before."
"I like the fact that we can do a mixture of three- and six-month seats as this gives us the opportunity to see lots of different parts of the firm. We have the opportunity to attend regular INN group sessions. We had introductions to each department in the firm but unfortunately quite a few of them got cancelled."
