TRAINING & INSIGHTS
Before joining the SEO Corporate Law Programme, I wasn’t sure how to write a successful application or what commercial awareness was. However, the programme has enabled to me to learn about commercial awareness. It has also made me more confident in writing applications and has enabled me to do well in assessment centres. This has resulted in me receiving a training contract offer from an American law firm! In all, the programme has truly widened my insights into a career in commercial law. It has made me realise my interests in private equity and has helped me start my legal career. I truly recommend this programme to anyone who wants a career in commercial law!
