@sebli12 congrats on the AC! I just want to check if you’ve received the VI/test invite others just received or a different invite?

Gateley’s process is confusing me a bit as the website doesn’t mention VI/Tests, just the AC. I appreciate they’ve likely made some changes because of COVID but interested to know!
It was the same invite as the others - just don't know the different acronyms on here haha

Sorry to be a broken record but has anybody heard recently from Gibson Dunn (vac scheme), Macfarlanes (direct TC), Slaughter and May (non law direct TC), MoFo (vac scheme)? Still waiting on all of them...
I received an email earlier this week from Slaughters for non-law direct TC saying they had filled their non-law interview spaces up for the year

    Hey, is the Freeths Legal Assistanr Programme opened?

    The last time I checked it said their scheme was re-opening in the new year. But nothing has been updated so I emailed GR and they said to check again in Feb and still the same thing 🥴
    Yeah, I only knew it was open due to a friend who is on the programme already!
