So i was thinking if MC firms do attend university career days(whatever they're called), it must mean they're interested in recruiting from those certain universities. So does anyone know which ones they attend? I'm sure they must attend RG unis. But which non RG ones are there? Thanks.

The list of unis they visit are (excluding London and Ireland unis):

Cambridge [All, but CC (4)]—not listed on CC's site. Might be an error.
Oxford [All (5)]
Edinburgh [All but CC (4)]
Exeter [All (5)]
Leeds [All (5)]
Manchester [All (5)]
Nottingham [All but CC (4)]
Bristol [All but S&M (4)]
Southampton [All but S&M (4)]
Durham [All but S&M (4)]
Birmingham [All but S&M (4)]
Leicester [All but S&M (4)]
Sheffield [All but S&M and CC (3)]
York [All but S&M and CC (3)]
Warwick [All but S&M and CC (3)]
Glasgow [Only Freshfields (1)]
St Andrews [Only Freshfields and Linklaters (2)]
Newcastle [Only Freshfields (1)]
Reading [Only Freshfields (1)]
Cardiff [Only Freshfields (1)]

Leicester and Reading (and St Andrews) are non-Russell Groups who are attended by Magic Circle firms. However, you should note that MCs' attending these particular unis only demonstrates that they are interested in these unis. It does not mean they aren't interested in others.

Wow. Thanks a lot. I'm surprised about Liverpool missing out. Ofcourse like you said it doesn't mean MC firms don't hire from there. But once more thanks! Its reassuring to see Leicester on the list as I have an unconditional from there which will be my insurance choice.

Seems they're embarrassed to admit.

I suspect CC also visited Cambridge, too. The sites are crap, but a good general guide.

At the moment I'm not sure which part of the law I'll be interested in after llb or i may even go for a llm. Though criminal law is something I'm interested in, I don't have enough knowledge of all the other fields to make a decision. Magic circle trainee or not I'm thinking of practicing in New York and California in the future but that's a long way away.

There is no guarantee you will like either criminal or commercial. You might end up specialising in immigration law or something. The only thing you can do is attend a university which will allow you to explore each of these areas and from there decide which interests you most. To be honest, you might find that not a single one interests you and end up taking the Aldi grad scheme with the Audi and 42k to match.

Once more I've not looked into that part of it yet because I'm not too sure what I'll even be doing in the future. And yes if I do apply to MC firms it'll be if I want to work in a field of law that they do operate in. Only time will tell what happens.

Has a horrendous reputation for high attrition rates though....
I imagine it does - I'm sure they work their hires pretty hard for the money.

I wonder if the attrition rate is much better at MCs? (Genuine question) Although I expect an MC applicant will have some idea of the incoming workload and expectations, whereas perhaps an Aldi applicant doesn't?

They were also embarrassed to award 500/1000 pounds to the top jurisprudence student

This isn't correct.. we had the following law firms attend our Careers Fair/host dinners with students recently: Allen & Overy, Baker & McKenzie, Bristows LLP, Burges Salmon LLP, Clifford Chance LLP, Clyde & Co, Dechert LLP, DLA Piper LLP, DWF LLP, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Herbert Smith Freehills, Hogan Lovells LLP, Jones Day, Linklaters, Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, Slaughter and May, Travers Smith LLP and White & Case.

It's a limited number of law firms, but then again, our university doesn't actually offer law as a degree.

All the Magic Circle firms sponsor our Law Society and S&M even sponsor our Economics Society as well.

A significant proportion of people walk away from their law degree not wanting to touch the subject ever again. Many will choose alternative careers, its typically finance, other professional services and the public sector, but will be across many different sectors and industries.

As Aldi has one of the highest paying graduate schemes (£44k starting salary and an Audi), and for a general management scheme by a significantly higher amount, it undoubtedly will attract some law students who decide a legal career isn't for them.
Thanks J-SP

If you read the post, you will see that I was extracting from the websites of the firms. It was limited to what they had posted on their websites.
