"This virtual internship was an amazing experience! Gaining knowledge and advice from firms such as, Slaughter and May, Adhurst and Clyde & Co, was a great privilege and I know this experience will help me in my studies and gaining future employment."

I took part in a three-day Commercial Law internship experience that was held by Bright Network. This internship gave me an opportunity of understanding and experiencing how it is to work in the field of commercial law, something that I probably would not have had the chance to experience in the pandemic. 

The program was tailor-made and was quite flexible. The team behind Bright Network went above and beyond in creating a practical work experience to complete remotely. I had the chance to complete a Slaughter and May work sample which revolved around Environment, Social and Governance and how businesses contribute to sustainable development. I also had the chance to learn about the United Nations Climate Change Conference and gain knowledge how it will affect us in the coming future. Completing this work sample enabled me to develop my skills and understanding of the commercial legal sector further.

Despite the internship being remote due to covid there was still a chance to network with others, as we had the option to peer review our work, this was very useful as it gave us the chance to share our ideas and learn from one another. Some of the other smaller sessions I enjoyed included topics such as, problem solving and negotiation. These sessions helped me improve my skills and learn directly from the professionals and specialists.  

This internship was an amazing experience that I would definitely recommend to other students who wish to boost their knowledge in this field. To gain knowledge and advice from firms such as, Slaughter and May, Adhurst and Clyde & Co, was a great privilege that I know will help me in my studies and employment in the future.
