I think it depends on the context Things to consider as to whether it’s appropriate:Hi @Jessica Booker,
I hope this message finds you well.
Would you say that the 'Head Start' Programme at Shearman & Sterling is sufficient to be placed in the work experience section of a law firm application? For context, the event is only 1 day and for first-year students only, so it's essentially a first-year open day. If not, do you think I should combine all my open days including the head start programme into one section of the application?
Is there another section it could be included in?
Is it at the cost of you not putting in a more substantial bit of work experience (eg a part time job during your academics or a non-legal internship)?
Are you listing this but not open days? What’s the rationale of including this but not having individual entries for the others.
I’d always try to include something like this as it is great to have on an application form. But it might be better to combine with other events as you have suggested, or for it to be mentioned/referenced elsewhere depending on the other application sections and what other evidence you have.
