Unregistered Actually itís a joke. Itís the delisted and London unis that are in the WS/MC that you all are talking about.

So if dissing the delisted and London unis make you happy by all means.
Besides these are some of the unis that the partners in these WS/MC/SC firms come from
Are you going to laugh at them too?

I'm not from a delisted law school but London. Quite frankly there's no difference in practice. Some of the greats do not have 'strong' academic grades like firsts.

If you do the math, this category would include those people who applied for law school at the peak of the glut and prior to the mass delisting of the UK schools. I.e. those who couldn't get into local law school and had to apply for second tier UK or Aussie universities.

I think you've confused the legal in-house function, with Big 4 accounting firms (or "consulting" firms as they like to call themselves nowadays) new legal service offerings.

The former is just like working in any in-house role lor. All big corporations have a legal department. Dealing with internal issues, employment, contracts with vendors etc.

The latter is the Big 4's attempt to muscle in on legal services for external clients, provided by traditional law firms, in addition to their existing service offerings like Audit, Tax and Consulting (not as prestigious as MBB).

For now they have to tie up with local law firms because of existing prohibitions against non-lawyer ownership of law firms.

Very soon however, I predict a liberalization in the legal sector such that accounting firms may fully own law firms. Prepare to sign on to the Big 4. Starting salaries for NQs will be < $3200/month (like auditors), as is the wish of some posters in this forum LOL. This is the future.
