In a recent interview Lynn Johansen, graduate recruitment partner at Clifford Chance, talks about the qualities needed by prospective applicants to Clifford Chance (which are applicable to most City firms), the application process and the training given to young lawyers.
She touches on what sort of work trainees can expect to do after qualification, as well as discussing the hours their lawyers can be expected to work and the opportunities for working overseas. Finally, she explains the Clifford Chance Pro Bono programme which is a major feature of the Clifford Chance ethos.
