"From my experience, mentor programmes are good here. The best is when mentor/mentee relationships spring up organically."
First year trainee, London
"Mentors are very good. They can be busy sometimes, but will always try and make time if you need a chat. Obviously some partners/associates are more accessible than others, but generally mentoring works well."
Second year trainee, London
"Partners and solicitors have an 'open-door' policy. Although the trainee needs to have the initiative, they are very approachable."
First year trainee, London
"Mentoring at KWM is pretty good. The firm is filled with dynamic people excited about their work, so you can always find someone excited to talk law and all things related."
First year trainee, London
"While it depends on the person, most people I have worked with have been good at giving feedback and are generally good at informally training."
First year trainee, London
"Solicitors and partners are extremely accessible. Trainees share an office with a supervising associate and your supervising partner is very close."

"I have had a mentor since I started on the vacation scheme and he has been with me ever since. He's a great source of motivation and information!"
First year trainee, London
"Mentoring can sometimes be a bit hit and miss, but it is easy enough to hunt out the ones that are willing to make time to discuss your performance in more depth. It is easy to let people know what type of work you want to work on or who in particular you want to work for."
First year trainee, London
"The firm is always keen to help and most of the partners genuinely care. Plus, there are always associates willing to offer legal and career advice as well as a specific associate mentor which all trainees get assigned to during their LPC year at BPP."
Second year trainee, London
"Supervising associates are extremely helpful and offer a good support network amongst the trainees."
First year trainee, London
"I have an informal mentor who is very helpful, but generally most people are keen to offer advice and help. My supervising partner puts emphasis on pastoral care."
