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.
CMS Cameron McKenna senior partner Richard Price has featured alongside one of the firm’s trainees in a Sky TV documentary on legal careers.
Trainee Mary Gemmell joined newly qualified solicitor Hussain Kubba, graduate recruitment partner Simon Pilcher and Price on the satellite station’s new employment ;channel, CareersTV.
The show, fronted by former Top of the Pops presenter Gail Porter, has been created to highlight the various routes into the legal profession and showcase what it is like to work for a City law firm.
Gemmell, who is in her third seat with Camerons, said it is important to use the media to give graduates alternative careers advice.
“I didn’t go down the traditional law degree route because I did music at university,” said Gemmell. “So I think it’s important to let students know that you don’t have to decide your whole career at 17 years old, but you can do a conversion course after you finish university.”
The show, the title of which is yet to be confirmed, will be aired early next year.
