    I am in the fortunate (and unexpected) position as to have been offered vac schemes at both of these great but quite different firms...Sadly though, they clash!

    It has led me to compare the two and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to give their opinions on which they think is the 'better' firm, if in fact you can class one as better than the other.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated, as I know some people may know more about these firms than me.

    Anyone any thoughts on this? I may not need to worry about my decision but I was just wondering if someone more knowledgeable than me thinks that one is much better than the other!

    I was very lucky and managed to keep both as I switched one of the schemes. I noticed you are doing Speechly's scheme. Which dates are you doing?

    Hey, I have a telephone interview with FFW for 2013 Vac Scheme this Friday. I was wondering if you had any advice on the type of interview it is. Is it competency-based, for example? I'm a non-law student so it's quite hard to grasp what it might entail!

    Thanks!
