Katie King and Tom Connelly reflect on CMS Cameron McKenna’s £8,000 gap year deal and the tabloids’ campaign against top judges


In a video of two halves, quite literally, Legal Cheek’s Katie King and Tom Connelly discuss training contract deferrals and the latest media backlash directed at our beloved Supreme Court judges.

Earlier this week we exclusively revealed that CMS Cameron McKenna was asking its future trainees to voluntarily push back the start dates of their training contracts. With the firm offering its aspiring solicitors around £8,000 to take an impromptu gap year, we discuss what trainees should make of the deal.

Meanwhile, Lord Neuberger and Lady Hale have come under fire in the run up to the hotly anticipated Brexit appeal hearing, scheduled to take place at the Supreme Court next month. But is the criticism, on this occasion, justified?

Due a technical hiccup, our video is split into two parts, both of which can be viewed below.
