  • Seems that the retention rates aren't as bad as could have been expected, still far from ideal though.

    Does anyone know why the three resigned?

  • Because those three couldnt bear it anymore!

  • Yeah the dole's a better option than qualifying as a solicitor, better prospects.

  • I imagine it's incorrect that they have resigned and will not qualify. Maybe they just didn't want to stay with Linklaters - the law in the magic circle is not for everyone you know.

  • Probably just more of the same from Linklaters. That is, multi-millionaire partners bullying £40,000 a year trainees into leaving. What a great place.

  • Did they resign or "resign"?

  • Whether they resigned or whether they "resigned", it doesn't really make a difference...

  • It is quite usual for a handful of trainees to decide themselves that they won't stay on. Same happens at my firm most years and happened when I qualified too. People just decide to do other things, move abroad, whatever. Some just aren't cut out for this job. No disgrace in that, but nothing sinister either (and certainly no need for embarassing suggestions of bullying). If anything, 3 is a surprisingly small number - it might arguably be higher, not lower, in a more buoyant market.

  • Perhaps they were offered jobs in areas of law that were not areas into which they wanted to qualify.
