Christmas passed pleasantly in the company of good friends – but then I had the misfortune to stumble across an article in The New Statesman about the prime minister’s attempt to control the internet: Cameron’s internet filter goes far beyond porn – and that was always the plan.
But…on the bright side…RollonFriday is doing in depth research into law firms and the attitudes of those who work at law firms.
Allen & Overy has got very posh with a “jazzy new in-house shop” which sells everything from “delectable pick’n’mix and cakes to champagne“. And Tiffany jewellery. And flour, “for all those who have the time to bake their own bread.” However there’s disagreement as to the quality of colleague. One trainee says there are “very few arseholes” in the firm, but a senior associate disagrees: “speedy lifts, wall-to-wall tossers“.
Thankfully, there are many fine lawyers out there – many working for very modest remuneration compared to the commercial velociraptors in ‘The City’ – chacun à son goût.
a più tardi….
