This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Lawyers are often castigated for their utter lack of management skills – but the next generation is trying to change that. Oxford University law student Harjeet Taggar was recently a finalist in a ‘Graduate of the Year’ competition organised by Real World magazine, winning £1,000. Taggar was praised for his entrepreneurial skills. While reading for his law degree, he set up www.boso.co.uk, an online marketplace exclusively for students.
With more than 2,000 students signed up, Boso offers a bewildering array of goods for sale. Computers, books and bikes are popular, but The Snail was fascinated to find “old milk” on offer too.
So congratulations to Taggar, whose experience at encouraging people to sell stuff will surely come in handy when qualified.
