Why your firm?
"The chair of the firm is a woman, as is the London office managing partner. I wanted to be a part of a firm where I knew that being female would not stop me from achieving my ambitions. The firm offered seats in a variety of practice groups, which interested me."First year trainee, London
"The small trainee cohort size and the firm's prestige."First year trainee, London
"The firm is especially good at employment law, which is what attracted me to it."First year trainee, London
"I knew I wanted to apply to a US firm but I didn't want to focus purely on corporate/finance/banking etc. Morgan Lewis offers a very broad training contract in comparison to a lot of US firms. For example, it has stand-alone employment and antitrust practices, they're both not just corporate support departments."First year trainee, London
"The firm seems to have a sincere appreciation of people's non-law backgrounds and experiences, which makes for a well-rounded firm."First year trainee, London
"The small trainee intake means you can get early responsibility."First year trainee, London
"The reputation and size of the office. I knew that I would get good training as a trainee due to the smaller intake."First year trainee, London
"There are great opportunities for international secondments. The fact that it is a relatively small office in a very large international law firm means that we get the exciting international work while working in much smaller teams."First year trainee, London
"I was approached at the Oxford University law fair and encouraged to apply for a vacation scheme. I then took part in one, which I really enjoyed due to the firm's friendly environment and the type of work that I assisted with."Second year trainee, London
"The rapidly growing office, the firm's presence both in the US and globally, and the small intake."First year trainee, London
"I know that I have far more responsibility here than I would compared to Magic Circle firms etc. The calibre of clients is indistinguishable but the opportunity to develop and engage with clients and partners is far greater."First year trainee, London
"The reputation, its global reach, the culture, the overseas opportunities and the salary."First year trainee, London
