  • @'Dewey London legal HR manager Katharyn White has [joined] SNR Denton. She was involved in helping Dewey legal staff find new roles'
    Excellent news, she'll be able to help all those SNR Denton lawyers find new jobs too when their firm collapses too.

  • is this news?
    i sometimes wonder at the whingeing middle-class sense of entitlement which is expressed in some of the comments to these articles. Isn't this the real world of private enterprise. Businesses fail as well as succeed. Just because its a trainee or a lawyer who have their comfortable world shaken by a bout of unemployment it doesn't make their pain necessarily special as compared with others who god for bid cleaned the place or worked in the Dewey post-room.

  • But surely cleaning the place and working in the post-room are core duties of every trainee?

  • How tragic. I can just see how sympathetically the Yanks would treat a young Brit in similar circumstances in New York. Something like "getoutta here you limey ****" springs to mind?

  • No, it doesn't make the pain worse, but it makes the 6 years of uni, law school and training pretty meaningless when you can't qualify.

    Nothing to do with entitlement, but basic human empathy. What a creature you are.

    bit easier to find a new job cleaning crappers and pushing a post trolley (no offence intended to those who do such jobs), than finding a new training contract., so keep your left-wing socialist diatribe to yourself.

  • The British immigration system has been successful because it keeps uneducated undesireables like this trainee out of the country.

  • Could not Peter Sharp be deported instead?

  • It is warming how former Dewey trainees have been picked up by other firms.
    It is far harder for trainess at high street firms that go pop.

    Does that include uneducated undesirables who can't spell undesirable, and who display political tendencies bordering on fascist?

    Have you never heard of sarcasm? It is a somewhat entertaining form of wit, formerly prevalent in the British Isles

    [sarcasm; noun - the use of remarks which clearly mean the opposite of what they say, in order to criticize in a humorous way; the use of irony to mock or convey contempt]

  • No, I don't think it can be sarcasm - someone who makes spelling mistakes like that wouldn't be intelligent enough to use any form of wit, even if it is the lowest form...
