    Oh I believe Linklaters and Minter Ellison both have virtual internships :)
    By the way, I checked out the Hogan Lovells webinar - it's great! :D

    These are not grad rec specific podcasts but a couple of good ones for industry knowledge and updates are those available from Freshfields (link here: https://www.freshfields.com/en-gb/our-thinking/our-podcasts/) and HSF (link here: https://www.herbertsmithfreehills.com/Podcasts). I personally used both of these resources when I was preparing for case studies and interviews etc as they tend to give great details on M&A trends with some handy explanations and things too! If I remember rightly, I think HSF had a great one on competition too which discussed the trend of competition authorities being increasingly interventionist.

    Would also add that now is the best time to follow law firms on social media and LinkedIn to keep up to date as well :)

    The workshops will cover:
    • Interview research
    • Preparation
    • Knowing your interviewer
    • Types of training contract interview questions
    • Knowing the law firm
    • Understanding the role of a commercial solicitor
    • Tip tips and best practice
    Here is the link if you would like to join us: https://shearman.eventbrite.co.uk/

    Thanks,

    Paul

    p.s. if you have any suggestions for other online workshops you would like us to deliver, please let me know...

    Also - Finimize is running a number of virtual events that may be of interest to some of you. I haven't attended any yet but they sound great for improving commercial awareness!

    There is a fee of £5 per event, but this does not apply if you are a Finimize Premium subscriber.

    Just to add - A&O have been hosting 'trainee takeovers' on their Instagram account and think the final one is tomorrow. Just seen on Linkedin they are inviting people to submit questions for some trainees to answer on tomorrow's takeover - the account name I believe is @aomadeformore
