Vacation scheme feedback

I’ve recently participated in Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ virtual vacation scheme. What a refreshing and insightful end to my law degree. It was great to engage in different workshops and practice areas by applying my legal knowledge.

A first for me today as work presiding at District Judge Beth for a virtual mock trial all afternoon for our vacation scheme students. Outstanding candidates and a lot of fun had by all. Wishing all applicants good luck when applying to the firm.”

I am proud to have recently completed a vacation scheme at HCR. It was an insightful experience and I look forward to continuing my relationship with the firm.

I have just finished the virtual vacation scheme at Harrison Clark Rickerbys. The overall experience has been truly rewarding and insightful, highlighting how great a firm HCR is. The workshop session broadly ranging from Family law to Corporate law and the mock trial were engaging and interactive, which enabled me to thoroughly enjoy all tasks I was given.

I would like to thank everyone involved from solicitors to trainees, who gave me such comprehensive knowledge and skill enhancing tips which will help me further pursue my legal career.

Applications for this year are now closed. The entry period will re-open in January 2025.
