"Fairly stressful. Senior fee earners have a habit of forwarding emails and asking the trainee to deal with whatever it may be. But there is good supervision if you ask for it."
Second year trainee, London
"I've never felt under undue pressure and feel that the more senior fee earners that you work with are doing a lot to soak up pressure to allow trainees to do what is needed."
First year trainee, London
