Student Feedback:

“Going through the corrections after the practice sessions was really helpful as we were able to identify why certain corrections needed to be made. There were simple things that I have overlooked that were important when drafting legal documents. This gave me a good indication of my performance pre-legal drafting session as well as some helpful tips to guide me through this process in the future. “

I found the feedback from the interviewers invaluable during the mock interviews. The commercial awareness task and the breakdown of how an M&A deal were very clear and easy to follow, the interactive nature of the workshops are also really beneficial”

“The Programme has honestly helped me to prepare for things such as interviews and applications processes. Sponsors from law firms gave me advice on my cover letter which I found really helpful.”

“The experience so far with the Grassroots Programme has given me more confidence to apply to firms for vacation schemes, particularly with the help provided in the first workshop. I also feel I am able to reach out for help and advice, which has been hugely beneficial. Additionally, it is great to be a part of a cohort, with other like-minded students who have had similar experiences.”

“My overall experience so far within the programme has been amazing. I enjoy the group work during the workshops and the help given by the mentors and speakers. This method of holding the workshops is a lot more effective than a talk being held or a lecture.”

“The Grassroots Programme has been a valuable experience for me as I have gained experience about the Watson Glaser test and all the different styles of questions. This has helped me think critically. I also had a lot of feedback given to me regarding my CV and how to tailor my experiences to legal skills and scenarios I’ll need to experience in the future. I am glad I was chosen as I have much to learn in order to grow and develop into who I want to be and this opportunity does this for me.”

“It’s clear that the Programme is well designed. There has been a gradual yet realistic step-up in the workshops. Each one has been insightful and intimate enough to get personalised feedback. The volunteers have been very approachable and have shown the different avenues that a lawyer can go into. I also appreciate that the materials are sent out after the workshops.”
