Maybe if y'all took as much time as you do flaming people online to prepare for your moots you'd have the same amount of wins and awards under your belt. haha

Don't get bitter, just get better.

Default Changing TC

Hello would like to hear some views on reneging on a TC one has already accepted to take up a better TC offer. Is such a practice frowned upon? Or is it understandable considering the bad market?

As long as no contract was signed, i don't see why not?
Even if contract was signed, as long as damages are paid, it is perfectly legal.

trainees are super dispensable to a law firm, especially in this employer's market. what major loss will it cause them if one lowly trainee breaks TC?

Not #3634, but I've heard that trainees who break TCs are blacklisted across the domestic market? I wouldn't be surprised if this were true.

Default Legal service

Any (constructive) views on DPPs? If one has experience in conducting some complex trials and HC/CA appeals, is that transferrable to private sector?

Lol. Itís an employerís market if you get cum laude and below or 2:2. Breaking TC would then mean youíre blacklisted.

But if you are FCH/summa with string of prizes, whatís stopping you? If TC Firm A canít pay you well or offer your better opportunities, then go for TC Firm B.

This is not true. I know plenty of people in my batch (cum laude/low 2:1 and below) who broke their TCs and they're doing fine in practice and in switching firms.

Lol at some of the paranoia here.

U give the firm's way too much credit. BTW There's no such thing as a superb info sharing network across the firms working to blacklist TC breakers. Heck some of these HR departments can't even sort out their s**t within their own department.

The only thing you may be risking is pissing off the partner in whose team you are going, really. But if it's a bigger firm hiring by department as a pool, then you're just an unknown entity. Chill.
