One Small Change


"I believe that there should be more international secondments considering the international presence of the firm."
First year trainee, London
"In my opinion the firm should make seat allocation more transparent."
First year trainee, London
"I do not believe that secondments should be compulsory. I think it's unfair that in the early stages of our careers, when we might not be sure what we actually want to do, that we are put in a client's hands "for business needs". That said, this process could be more useful to those who have decided which field of law they want to end up in."
