Student Guides 2016

It's red-hot. It's straight off the press. It's the new guide. Ask your careers service for a copy.

The 2016 edition

Personal recommendations are your true ally. Amid the noise of slick marketing campaigns and vendetta-review websites, listening to someone you trust is the only reliable way to understand your future employers. Word-of-mouth accounts are powerful, but they come replete with horror stories of burn-out City life, myths of ogre partners, or glittering reputations based on a single anecdote.

In researching this edition of the Chambers Student Guide, we asked our trainee and pupil interviewees to tell us in the bluntest terms about their employers – about everything they love and everything they loathe. Each law firm and chambers review is the real-life experience of many, but presented in a balanced, considered, and comprehensive form. No other source anywhere can come close to this level of insight. 

This guide might be the most useful thing you read this year, so get stuck in, and we wish you all the best with your career.
