  • Outrageous!

    How is it that Norton Rose is able to go outside of the EU to recruit trainees/lawyers. I thought the new government policy meant that this was illegal unless the firm is unable to locate suitable lawyers from within the EU. Given the huge competition for training contracts within the UK, and the diverse talent available within the EU, surely Norton Rose can find enough suitable candidates from the EU. Why look outside? What is the motivation here??

  • Not outrageous

    Norton Rose is perfectly right in recruiting newly qualified indian lawyers. If they are looking to advise on Indian laws and understand better the Indian Market, who do you think they will recruit: Italian Lawyers?

  • Cost Savings!!

    I heard they can post them anywhere and that they are more willing to re-locate to the places that UK Solicitors are not willing to go.

  • Not fair!

    As if there is a shortage of hard-working trainees here! Isn't Eastwood saying UK educated trainees aren't hard working enough? there is a wide pool of potential talent here, and from ethnic minorities. Is this just to save costs?

  • Have you read the article?

    Mathew, have you actually read this article? it says nothing about recruiting Indian solicitors to work on Indian law, they are being recruited because Norton Rose doesn't seem to think UK/EU solicitors are good enough, i.e they don't know about hard work, and are in law because their parents told them to go into it (see quote from their recruitment partner).

    In reality Norton Rose probably want people who are less likely to complain about long hours and a lack of work life balance.

  • no surprise

    is tht really a surprise??
    norton rose is probably even late. CC, Links, A&O, Simmons, SJ Berwin and CMS hav all been recruiting trainees directly from india for years now.
    and this is all meant to tap the burgeoning indian market..simple!
