  • Thanks not very much

    Magic circle law firms are massively over-subscribed for jobs, so when they offer work experience to middle achieving candidates put forward by diversity organisations it is out of a sense of charity, not necessity.

    This girl was not a great ambassador for people from "non-traditional backgrounds"

  • Second time unlucky?

    Why did she come back for a second work experience stint, and two years later at that? Pretty unusual. I can't help but suspect that she came back with the theft in mind.

    She would have made a great lawyer...

  • 3 days?

    One report I read online said that she started producing the cheques just three days in to the job - true?

  • Last post

    Can't have been much longer - most work experience placements only last a week, and very rarely more than two.

  • Magic Circle Accounts

    What ever happened to basic office procedures? Signatures? Counter signatures? Who would give a work experience intern. the company cheque book? Who authorised the raising of the cheques? Who is in charge of the accounts? Paul Daniels and Debbie Magee?

    It seriously begs a lot of questions, and some P45's

    IMHO...

    Was the entire department just there on work experience?

    It's human nature: people will always thieve from their fellow man and even the hand that feeds them. it doesn't matter if you're on work experience or a share partner at Latham and Watkins- you're equally capable of putting your hand in the till. can't blame Freshfields or the access scheme.

    Large amounts don't grow on trees - and some people will attempt to pick a pocket or two, or in this case six.
