CC: the law student’s choice of dream employer

Wannabe lawyers have given Clifford Chance the official thumbs-up by naming the law firm as the employer for which they would most like to work.

A survey of more than 16,000 final year students at 30 universities was conducted by graduate research company High Fliers Research for The Times Graduate Recruitment Awards 2005. Students interested in law were asked to name who they most wanted to work for out of the applications that they had made, or were planning to make, to law firms. The Canary Wharf-based firm came out top and has been crowned ‘Employer of Choice for Law’.

The firm also won the award for ‘Best Graduate Recruitment Brochure’. The research said the “professional and stylish” design made a strong impact on students and that its main selling points were its simple indexing and comprehensive and clearly presented information.
