Made in Chelsea cast member Robbie Mullett has been spilling the tea on Herbert Smith Freehills’ summer vacation scheme.

In a takeover of the firm’s grad rec Instagram stories, Mullett, who joined the three-week scheme starting this week, shared his highlights so far.

Mullett, who studied law at UCL, documented his first day at the firm, from the welcome breakfast to the first-night dinner.

In an earlier post on the MiC cast member’s Instagram account, Mullett explained why he embarked upon a career in law. “By chance, I received a jury summons in late 2018. I emerged with a desire to study law — no matter my internal sense of unworthiness,” he said referencing his background as a state-educated, first-generation university student.

He continued: “The trial altered my perspective. The defendant we found guilty had been sentenced to 15 years. What was four years of study? I felt the gravity of the situation and compelled to get to work.”

Mullett recently graduated with a first class degree in law from UCL, according to his LinkedIn profile. Now, he’s on the hunt for a training contract and could nab one through HSF’s vac scheme.
