Insider review

Social Mobility


"We run a number of initiatives, such as access to law, and try and play as large a role in the local community with similar initiatives as possible."
First year trainee, Bristol
"Quite a bit of community work - we invite children from local schools in to experience a day in the firm as well as running a work experience programme for local teenagers from less privileged backgrounds."
Second year trainee, Bristol
"The firm does seem to attract a range of applicants, both in terms of personality, age and background. Generally people seem to be from a similar (middle class) background."
First year trainee, Bristol
"The firm allows less privileged students to apply. Our first years are all cut from the same cloth - all Oxbridge or Bristol educated, all well-off and mostly private schooled. My year is more diverse."
