    I attended a summer school by Oxford last year, but I was not given any certificate for it, should I include this in my personal statement? Usually what is learnt in a law firm attachment? I used to be shadowing a solicitor but I was just running errands for the firm. Anyone can share their experience here? Tq

    Yes, you should include it in your personal statement, additionally, there is an option on UCAS to input open days and summer schools you have attended. I guess it means the paperwork that the Law firm give you to say that you worked with them?
