JLC goes practice without client base is as good as a trainee.
Only those without connections will go JLC or AGC.

You are expected to bring in deals, must carry yourself well. If you are a guy - tall good looks count - not so much legal skills.

If you are a girl - must look good in tight dresses, legal skills are out the window too. Try not to get caught flirting with Shen or Stef will have u for dinner.

keep it serious pls. no troll responses, we have more than enough of that here already.

ive heard the culture there is pretty intense. what does that mean?

also, how does a junior bring in deals considering they service institutional or corporate clients? not all of us play golf with daddy and his ceo friends

Yes what does ďpretty intenseĒ mean? Its a nebulous concept often bandied about when it comes to describing indescribable things.

For starters, TSMP is a staunch feminist firm. Sign up to be a member of AWARE or initiate womens rights issues. Do something to stand out, and take a picture or video too so that it can be featured. Makes for great marketing.

Their lawyers use big words without really understanding what they mean. Just read their publications to get a sense of this. You would have come across these types in school - do you really want to work with them?

I would go so far as to say that to fit in, you must be arrogant and cocky. Never admit your mistakes when you are wrong and always try to dominate the conversation.

The firm has good people, does good work, and is a good size. It values its people and prioritises training.

As a junior associate, Iíve gained valuable experience battling alongside senior colleagues on the frontlines. Here, you are never just doing piecemeal research or standing in as drafting support; instead, you take a broader and active involvement in overall file strategy and client engagement. I didnít realise how much Iíd taken this for granted until a recent meeting I attended Ė there were two junior associates from the opposing firm, and neither of them were introduced. Iíve had a name card since I stepped in as a trainee, Iíve always been introduced. Iíve even led meetings. Your opinion here is valued, heard and discussed. The firmís structure also allows for a direct working relationship with partners and mentors, and Iíve had the privilege of second-chairing for Shen Yi since my first year of practice

If your family has no connections then you must be prepared to slave for a long time at long hours

most people have families in law or business. thatís how some law firms recruit
