How did your favourite legal institutions fare?

The most in-depth, informative and entertaining law careers resource on the internet has gone live for the 2017-18 graduate recruitment year.

At the top of the billing is the Legal Cheek Firms Most List 2018, which contains everything you need to know about the UK’s leading 70 corporate law firms. The list features a combined 50,000 words of copy detailing every nook and cranny of the magic circle, global elite, London-based US and national UK law firms. In addition to The Legal Cheek View — which is full of anonymous quotes from trainees and other insiders within City law firms — each firm has its own scorecard detailing how they performed in this year’s Legal Cheek Trainee and Junior Lawyer Survey that we conducted over the summer.

Plus there’s average arrive and leave times for each firm, data that reveals the chances of doing international and client secondments, all the latest pay info (including newly qualified money as well as trainee remuneration), hours targets, diversity statistics and much more.

Next up is our new Chambers Most List 2018, which contains key facts and figures about the nation’s leading 50 commercial-focused sets of barristers. The list features pupillage award and advance drawdown figures for each chambers, alongside junior and QC gender diversity figures. We have also broken down how many new tenants at each set studied at Oxbridge. Finally, there is the new ‘In the junior barristers’ own words’ section that we have begun rolling out across the list.
