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.
The winners of The Lawyer's competition to send two readers on charity-related field visits as honorary journalists - one to street children's charity ChildHope's operations in Tanzania and the other to the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Trust's world-class laboratories in London - were announced last week.
Jonathan Wood, an in-house lawyer in investment bank Calyon's London legal department, and Clare O'Brien, an associate at Cobbetts, were the successful pair. Each will report on the charities' activities in Africa and London respectively for a feature, which is due to be published in the Christmas issue of The Lawyer.
The inaugural competition generated a strong response from private practice, in-house and public sector lawyers. However, the judges - The Lawyer's editor Catrin Griffiths, former deputy editor Matheu Swallow and associate editor Matt Byrne - were struck by the competency of the editorial and the level of research both winners displayed.
Last week ChildHope and the CF Trust were both confirmed as The Lawyer's chosen charities until The Lawyer Awards in 2007. The Lawyer's publisher Libby Child said: "This three-year tenure will give both charities a real chance to establish a major profile with our generous readership."
