"The work is interesting, challenging and engaging for the most part. Occasionally you have to speak up to get the chance to try higher-level work."
First year trainee, London
"It can vary. Sometimes you are given a lot of responsibility and are asked to do interesting work. Other times you can be asked to do quite dull administrative tasks. However, this is to be expected at a junior level."
First year trainee, London
"We get lots of responsibility including drafting witness statements, being in direct contact with clients on a daily basis and drafting external memos. The work is mostly of a decent quality although there is, inevitably, some boring admin to do."
First year trainee, London
"We are given more responsibility and more interesting things to do than peers at other firms. I find that we are typically corresponding with clients and outside counsel more frequently than we would elsewhere."
First year trainee, London
"I'm very satisfied. I have a high level of responsibility and work closely with partners, associates and clients on a wide variety of deals."
Second year trainee, London
"I get a very high quality of work that can be associate level at times."
First year trainee, London
"The work I have been assigned has been mixed. Much of it has inevitably been quite dry and procedural, which is to be expected at the trainee level, but I have also been afforded the opportunity to do some more interesting work, such as for the tax and antitrust departments. People will encourage you to take ownership of aspects of a deal and this can lead to having a good deal of responsibility at an early stage, which is great experience."
First year trainee, London
"I'm pretty satisfied. I get a lot of responsibility to run with matters and liaise directly with clients. The only downside is that you can find it difficult to move on to new projects once staffed on a longer-term project because we don't have traditional seats. It can be done though; you just have to speak up."
