Dude, there are many variables to all this. Lord Neuberger and Lord Sumption do not even have a law degree.

Does anyone know what is the current pay for NQs in terms of big 4, (bigger) mid sized, (smaller) mid sized, and small?

This year haven’t release.
Only BM is same every year at 7.5k and 8.5k 10 months later.
Big four should be 5.6k upon call.
Mid size 4.5k
Chinatown 3-3.5k

Seniors can chip in as these are few years ago figures

Nothing is impossible, but it won’t be easy at all.

Remember that at the junior tier, employers (including the silver circle firms) are absolutely spoilt for choice. If they can get a first or a 2.1, they’d much rather do so than to explain to the hiring committee why they’ve decided to request and exception and select a 2:2.

For unconnected 2.2s, the more conventional path into an international firm would be to “upgrade” gradually through the tiers. From wherever you start out, you’d wait for attrition and burnout to hit your Big4 peers, and take the jobs they vacate. Then build up your resume and make the jump to international when your resume looks good enough.

Any advice or experience as a 2nd lower graduate applying for TC/ getting retained and prospects as a lawyer? Would greatly appreciate any help given!
Honestly at this stage with a full academic year left to go, my advice is not to assume you’ll miss 2:1. If you work hard, buck up, maybe hire a personal tutor and get straight A’s, you might land a 2.1 and this discussion could well be hypothetical.

Do law firms pay bonus as part of the total annual package?

Have the bonuses been included in these salaries?

If they pay bonuses but have not been included in these salaries, how many months bonus do law firms pay?
