"The people. It sounds like one of those things that every firm says to try and get you to apply but it's actually true. Everyone is really friendly and welcoming. You don't get the stereotypical cut-throat City law firm vibe at all, even though we do the same type of work that those firms do."
First year trainee, London
"Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming and willing to help you when you need it, which is good because often you get a large amount of responsibility as a trainee."

"Cooley looks after its employees as individuals. The firm is generous and supports you to have a life outside of work."
First year trainee, London
"I've only been here a few weeks, but I've been made to feel like a member of the team immediately. Partners have personally come to say 'hi' and welcome me to the firm and there's a real emphasis on a flat structure, which makes the environment much more supportive and conducive to learning. Cooley always seems to be at the forefront of new technology, gaps in the law and being different, which makes working here so exciting. Everyone from facilities to associates and the marketing team is genuinely excited for where Cooley is and where it is headed."
