Any S5/S6 or Y12/Y13 students at state schools who are thinking of studying Law at uni/ practicing Law in the future should take a look at this competition by CMS Cameron McKenna (now Scotland's largest law firm with three offices as of May, and other offices in over 30 different countries across the globe). https://www.allhires.com/CMSCMCK/Pos...=%2fCMSCMCK%2f
