Rate that placement
OK, so summer hasn’t perhaps been all that we had hoped for yet with only glimpses of sunshine and blue skys, but for many students relaxing outside was never at the forefront of their mind, as summer is also of course vacation placement season. A number of firms have been trying hard to squeeze everything in before the Olympics start and London grinds to a halt and this has meant for many aspiring lawyers it has been harder to find the time to undertake placements at a number of different firms.
At Pinsent Masons we firmly believe that a summer placement is the best way for you to understand whether a career in commercial law is right for you and so this year we have invited in excess of 100 students to take part in placements across our network of UK offices. We are now just over half-way through the process and have been delighted by the attitude everyone has shown and the quality of work they have been producing – this bodes very well for our trainee recruitment (c.70% of our trainees undertook a vacation placement at the firm before joining).
If you are thinking of undertaking a vacation placement next Summer then you will no doubt be keen to find out what this year’s students have made of the experience at Pinsent Masons and a number of other leading firms. For an impartial view we would recommend you check out the reviews written by vacation placement students past and present at RateMyPlacement.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
