  • This is disastrous PR. Why did it take them so long to cancel the scheme? Surely the 'changes in the structure of the legal market' must have been known for a while?

  • Wow - things must be pretty bad for them if they are more willing to take a pretty bug PR hit than pay a few quid to some vac schemers.

  • Wow. There really must have been nothing for the vac schemers to do.

  • This is very poor form from D&W. "Changes in the structure of the legal market"! How pathetic!

  • If I were the summer vac students, I wouldn't be overly concerned; no point trying to sell yourself and your ability to a firm which won't be in existence come Christmas time...

  • If you look at the trends at Dundas then it's downwards, TC deferrals and terrible NQ retention rate. They look like they're abandoning trainee recruitment generally.

  • I really pity the poor people who continue to work in the London office of this firm. That said, mass emigration from this office began two years ago so everyone has had plenty of chance to get out while they can.

    Anything would be better than sitting in an office where morale is low, 15 partners leave in the space of 6 months (I understand there were only 80 or so a year ago - this is a significant proportion), and there are weekly stories of doom and gloom. If it were me, I'd rather pack it in and go enjoy the sunshine.

    Ex-2103 summer vac schemers: Lucky escape.
    Deferred 2013/2014 trainees: Look for something else.

  • Market conditions or the great weather conditions?
