    2020-21 Vacation Scheme Applications Discussion

    Hello! I have an interview soon and one of more noteworthy things about this firm is that it is global.

    Hello! does anyone have any advice specifically on what kind of knowledge I should have before attending a VS to give me the best chance of securing the TC? I don't mean things like being confident, enthusiastic, etc. I'm doing what I can to get a better understanding of what a law firm does...

    Slaughter and May VS 2021/TC 2023 application

    Slaughter and May VS 2021/TC 2023 application

    There are still many other firms so all the best! :) I received an offer today but was wondering if anyone knows why it's only 8 days instead of the three weeks as advertised on their site - is it something to do with covid?
