Second year trainee, London
"I chose Baker & McKenzie for a variety of reasons, including its pro bono and diversity initiatives; small intake of trainees; their multitude of strong departments who don't just do corporate support and how their focus was not purely on corporate and banking law, ensuring that they are highly reputable. They also had a friendly culture, without a 'face-time' expectation."

"I wanted a big City firm and enjoyed the interview process at Bakers and the people I met on it. I had also heard that the hours were better than at the other American firms (which is true)."
Second year trainee, London
"The week I spent here encouraged me to apply; the people and the work they gave me was of a high standard even though I was very junior."
Second year trainee, London
"I chose Baker & McKenzie for their global strength, and the attitude of all of those that I had met at the firm prior to starting. The graduate recruitment department told everyone that there were jobs for every candidate if successful and not to compete amongst one another. They also lived up to the promise of delivering the results of the application the next day."
Second year trainee, London
"The global reputation and high standing on all league tables, as well as the relatively small size of the intake were key factors which influenced me in applying for a training contract here. The friendly atmosphere was also a real plus."
