Amy Sandel

Third seat trainee

I completed a law degree and then looked at a number of different career options before opting for a vacation scheme at Trowers. After that insight I studied for a Master in law, which allowed me to focus on the commercial areas I knew I was interested in.

I'd recommend anyone considering law to go on open days and vacation schemes to try and understand what a firm does, how it's culture works and decide if it's right for you. This is a very inclusive place - a friendly supportive environment where each person is recognised as an individual and encouraged to be a team player.

Trainees as Trowers benefit from doing genuine client work. We're given real responsibility but always supervised and supported. Working closely with my supervisor has given me huge insight into law in practice. He's a partner in the firm and as well as legal expertise he has a lot of commercial acumen - working alongside him is an incredible way to learn.
