    the title is misleading- freshfields is asking trainees to voluntarily defer to cover an imbalance, and not for the same reasons as lovells or simmons.

    please stop this whole credit crunch-trainee layoffs nonsense

  • Why can't people be honest for once?

    Law firms get more respect if they are being honest about the reasons behind what they do. Asking trainees to delay their start date is clearly a way to reduce cost, perfectly understandable when we are in the middle of a credit crunch. So why gives us this rubbish that "people prefer to start in summer" etc etc?

    If this firm so respects the wishes of the graduates, surely there would always be more trainees joining the summer, rather than winter? As for them wanting to take a break, they have been taking break since May.........
