What others say...

It was refreshing to spend time at a firm where it is clear their values are central to life at the firm and not just marketing spiel. The structure of the day really delivered a fantastic insight into life at Burges Salmon and commercial law in a wider sense, speaking to trainees informally throughout the day was hugely beneficial.
