Rare Foundations: Law Candidate

Rare Foundations: Law was an extremely helpful insight into the legal profession.

The Articles insight event, Breakthrough, involved a commercial awareness workshop which improved the fluency with which candidates discussed current affairs and their commercial implications. I particularly enjoyed the panel session with partners from eleven different firms as it was not only accessible to first year students, but also improved our understanding of the different practice areas of a law firm.

The insight into Clifford Chance and Hogan Lovells allowed us to network with graduate recruitment, trainees, associates and partners at both law firms. I found the application and interview skills workshop with graduate recruitment very useful in my applications for first year insight schemes. We were also given a talk on excelling in important university modules by Melissa Andrewes which was invaluable in preparing for first year exams. The negotiation and dispute resolutions workshops at both law firms were a fun and informative insight into the work of a commercial lawyer.

Folarin completed the A&O First programme, first year workshops at Freshfields and Herbert Smith Freehills and first year schemes at Ashurst and Clifford Chance. Folarin is now an Associate at Freshfields.
