    Hi! I'm not sure who else has applied but I thought I'd start a thread for Burges Salmon just in case. How did everyone find the application?

    I’ve applied for VS! Still waiting to hear.

    I enjoyed the questions, there’s lots to talk about.

    I don’t remember there being a choice. I thought it was just 2020 summer vacation scheme?

    I'm thinking about applying for the direct TC - what did everyone think were challenges for them being an independent law firm?

    Vacation schemes will take place on the following dates:

    Yeah there was the option of Spring - it was on the application section.

    Spring:

    14-24 April 2020 (first day of the scheme is a Tuesday due to Easter bank holiday)

    Summer:

    8-19 June 2020

    22 June 2020- 3 July 2020

    I actually found this quite tricky but I talked along the lines of:
    • Competitors merging/acquiring other firms creating stronger competition in a particular sector (perhaps).
    • Recruiting talent i.e. trainees or lateral hires in terms work offered and remuneration.
    • IT infrastructure/tech offering and depth of resources.
     
    • Useful Useful x 1
