1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
After an hour of presentations about the different events that go on in the company, I got paired with a trainee solicitor where I got given the chance to experience what life is like as a solicitor in a commercial firm. Each day of my week, I got the chance to look at a range of different departments.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
My programme was very structured as on the Monday I was given the full information of what would happen. At no one time during my placement was I given nothing to do. If I would change anything, it would be the time duration of the presentations as they were longer than they needed to be.
