  • In relation to the information above, on what bases do law firms decide on which universities they aim to visit and also is there an opportunity for individuals to enter the competition even though their university has not been nominated.
    Is there also a chance for universities to interchange information in order to be entered into future events and competitions such as this.

  • It's certainly encouraging to see FFW take the initiative. But is this going to improve their NQ retention rate? Doubtful for a firm that let go all but a couple of their trainees in 2010. Pity that didn't get the trade news attention it deserved.

  • Strange how the Universities they intend to visit appear to mostly be Russell Group, or at least snobbish...some real equal oppertunities there I think not! Pity really because if it were truly equal it would be a fantastic promotion!

  • I agree to some extent with Anonymous, give some up and coming universities a chance. These are typical universities for such a company but also ones which are stuggling in the face of new competition, or at least if you beleive the various university guides and league tables. Russell Group does not necessarilly equal quality; many of these universities are not even in the top 10 (again if you believe in such league tables).

    I disagree that the above universities are snobbish, but the attitude I encountered at open days this year with such universities was not of universities moving with the times to secure their future success but of universities resting on their laurels. They are being ousted from the top league table positions by universities who are more activley investing in their futures and who have no laurels to rest on.
