Why your firm?

2019

"I like the size of the London office (roughly 200 lawyers, including trainees) and the size of the trainee intake (between 15 and 20 per year). The nature of the work that the firm does also attracted me to it."

"The non-rotational system and its reputation worldwide and in the UK market."
First year trainee, London
"The international reputation, office and trainee intake size, variety of work and compensation."
Second year trainee, London
"I saw a snapshot of the flat hierarchy culture while on the vac scheme and loved it. If you are confident, this place is for you and you can thrive here. If you want responsibility and to go and get some super work, you will see the opportunity on the vac scheme and seize it."
Second year trainee, London
"The quality of work and non-rotational training contract. The salary wasn't bad either."
First year trainee, London
"I was curious about the non-rotational system combined with a straightforward interview process and good vacation scheme."
First year trainee, London
"The vacation scheme gave me an insight into the firm's culture and the people. This reassured me that I'd be coming to a place full of good people and with a lot of responsibility early on. I wanted as much autonomy in my training contract as possible and I knew that Jones Day would be the best place to have this."

2018

"I attended a recruitment event and enjoyed chatting with the people from the firm who attended. I really enjoyed the feel of the place once I was on my vacation scheme and thought I was well suited to it."
First year trainee, London
"The global reach of the firm combined with a smaller London office. The non-rotational system is a draw too as it allows you to try more practice areas than a traditional rotational training contract, so you can really hone your skills. It also means that, whatever area you do decide to qualify into, you have a wide knowledge of many types of law, which makes you a better and more well rounded lawyer."
First year trainee, London
"The different training structure and the fact that the firm only recruits from the vac scheme."
First year trainee, London
"The attitude of the partners towards trainees was very welcoming and inclusive."
First year trainee, London
"The non-rotational training system and opportunity to get early responsibility. We come out of our training system knowing more about the areas of law in which we will practice as new qualifiers than our peers at other firms."
First year trainee, London
"The straightforward application and the fact that it was a global firm. It had a big name and clients but a mid-sized office and trainee intake."
First year trainee, London
"The non-rotational system, the personalities of the interviewers and the atmosphere I experienced when on the vacation scheme."
Second year trainee, London
"The opportunity to try everything as a trainee and no chance of being stuck in a seat you don't like for six months."
