    Hi

    Reed smith wants me to send some answers within 5 days.
    I received this email on Tuesday. The 5th day is Saturday. Does this mean I have to send it to them by Friday?
    It would probably mean end of day Saturday but I would personally try to have a good look through everything long before then in case you notice any issues/ need advice and can't access anyone over the weekend.

    Hi all,

    I know this can be a long shot, but do people have any insight as to which law firms are recruiting for TCs with 2022 start? I know Willkie and Katten do, but maybe there are more.

    As someone who is impatient to get a job too, something you should consider is just applying for 2023 TCs and just asking if they will let you start sooner. I was speaking to a recruiter at interview about this recently and apparently it's not uncommon for one or two trainees every cycle to want to defer their TC for a year after receiving it.

    But ultimately, it depends on the firm. The worst thing they can do is say no and you have to paralegal for a bit. Could be a good opportunity to experience a different practice area anyway.
