2014

"I chose Osborne Clarke because of its reputation, expertise and focus in relation to exciting digital business and technology clients."
First year trainee, London
"The firm's sector focus was interesting and fairly unique. I wanted to work at a firm which didn't have a huge trainee intake as I wanted to make sure I was more than just a number and was able to add value to the firm during my training. It was also important to me that I was given real responsibility from the get-go as I had already held a number of paralegal positions and wanted to be challenged. I also liked the culture I experienced during the vacation scheme and the size of the firm and its geographical placement appealed to me."
First year trainee, Reading
"I chose this firm after the vacation scheme proved to me that it was a genuinely nice place to work with people who respected work/life balance but still wanted to do top quality work."

"Osborne Clarke is one of the biggest firms in Bristol, the people at the assessment centre were very friendly, and I thought there would be good opportunities."
