Tuesday 2 – Friday 5 April
During the week, you take part in:
a negotiation exercise;
an application skills workshop;
a group project;
lunch with associates and trainees;
speed networking with all our practice areas; and
work shadowing a trainee.
The application skills workshop walks you through our application form. Our early legal careers team also provide you with their top tips for success. Shadowing a trainee offers invaluable experience, and you get to see first-hand the work that goes on in a practice area. You may sit
in on a conference call, help with research or look through a draft agreement.
The insight scheme is a good first step towards the vacation scheme and the training programme. You leave having had a real behind-the-scenes experience of working at a commercial law firm.
