Why your firm?
"I was encouraged to apply to Orrick because of the small trainee intake; I didn't want to be a face in the crowd."Second year trainee, London
"I attended a really good presentation at law school by the Orrick training principal - he was enthusiastic, funny and interesting and I instantly then went to research the firm further. The firm's global reach and interesting work, together with the friendly culture encouraged me to apply here."First year trainee, London
"The work seemed interesting, and the culture sounded like a good fit: West Coast US firm, fairly relaxed and informal. The size of the office as against the size of the firm globally was a big selling point, since it looked like we would be getting a lot of responsibility with some big clients early on. Plus, the interview process was probably the nicest interview I had."Second year trainee, London
