Work from home

One good hangover from the pandemic is flexible working. Most law firms continue to offer some sort of hybrid working policy, although it’s worth noting that the rules are often different for trainees than fee-earning staff. As a trainee there are of course myriad benefits to working in the office; our respondents often talk of ‘learning by osmosis’ – that is absorbing knowledge through listening to supervisors on the phone with clients or by talking through matters with other fee earners. But it’s nice to have the option to work from home too, especially when you consider how much time you save on the commute! Trainees at these Future Lawyers Winner firms think that their employers have struck the right balance with their flexible working policies.
