  • "After reading history at Cambridge, like many students Rooney did not know what she wanted to do next, so she signed up to do law and then secured a contract at Slaughters."
    In other words, her degree gave her little, or no, employment prospects.

  • Under the caption "On the Lawyer.com" on the first page of this website it says:

    "Exactly how difficult is it for LGBT people to forge a career in the law? It seems that no one knows for sure, which is why the Law Soc has teamed up with Stonewall and InterLaw to find out. And what would you do if you left the law? Make handbags perhaps?"

    I don't appreciate the implication in that passage that if gay lawyers leave the law they should consider a career making handbags. That is a very biased and stereotypical view of the interests of lawyers who happen to be gay! We all do not have an interest in going into the fashion industry! Please remove that question. Thanks.

  • What is most sad about this article is it shows just how many 'committed' lawyers there are out there. These 3 people were all at really good firms, at the expense of other candidates who might have actually wanted to work in law the first place.

    Ridiculous.
