Sengova’s Story

“Hogan Lovells has been instrumental in helping develop my legal career. As a UCL student, I attended an open day at the firm where I gained a practical insight into what a career as a commercial lawyer would be like through discussions with partners and associates. Through the PRIME accredited Hogan Lovells’ work, I attended further insight days at the firm. These were very helpful as I participated in workshops with other students where I analysed case studies on commercial deals that Hogan Lovells had worked on. I was able to further understand the roles that lawyers play in business. I also received tailored application advice that helped me to prepare strong applications and obtain vacation scheme experience with two commercial law firms. I was impressed by the approachable culture at Hogan Lovells and the strength of its practice areas. Having obtained and accepted a training contract with the firm, I started my training contract in August 2014 and have learnt an immense amount: so far, I have been exposed to a variety of work in Corporate and Litigation.”
