UPDATE 4pm: XXX chose the London firm
One is at an exciting new firm in Leeds. It’s small, but has big dreams.
The other is with an established London media law firm – where XXXX would be first required to complete a week’s work placement to establish that he fits in.
Which should he choose?
Legal Cheek editor Alex Aldridge, who is a slave to quasi-religious hippy mantras, urges XXXX to follow the slogan written on his favourite T-shirt: “Be guided by love not fear”.
Meanwhile, Bircham Dyson Bell solicitor Kevin Poulter likens XXXX’s dilemma to having to elect between a “juicy satsuma hanging from the tree” and a “pink lady apple lying on the floor waiting to be devoured”.
“It’s much easier when you put it like that,” says XXXX – who co-runs LawPod in his spare time – but he’s still undecided.
Listen to the trio discuss XXXX’s dilemma on the podcast below (and on iTunes) – and give the poor lad some advice, before it’s too late…
