1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


The day would beign with a talk on one of the areas which Pinsents work in. These were well presented and informative. This would last around three quarters of an hour. The rest of the day was spent with a Trainee Solictor in their "team". We rotated from one team to another form day to day which provided a well rounded view of the firm.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


Developed legal knowledge.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


Very enjoyable. All of the Trainess were very willing to talk whilst I also got on well with the other students.
