This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
If the staff canteens of City firms do little to excite your imagination – or your tastebuds – then you could do worse than apply for traineeship at IP specialists Bird & Bird. A burlesque club, called Volupté, has opened underneath its Chancery Lane office.
Despite the club’s strict no-nipple policy, the management at Bird & Bird has taken exception to Volupté and complained to the landlord about the change of use of the property. But Kuki La-Belle and Delores von Cotier, the club’s co-owners, are determined to get lawyers into the erotic den, which offers a range of dishes and cocktails for lunch and dinner.
“We’re both surprised and saddened by Bird & Bird’s reaction to Volupté,” Cotier told Lawyer 2B. “We’re without doubt a perfect place for corporate events and client meetings and would welcome them.”
And, for you impoverished students, Volupté is free every night except Friday and Saturday.
