Editor's Welcome

Editor's Welcome

Welcome to the 14th edition of The Lex 100 – the essential guide to training contracts at the UK’s top law firms.

Another year has passed but our mission to help you navigate the murky waters of the training contract marketplace remains. As ever, our aim is to bring you an honest, balanced and comprehensive account of what it’s really like to train at top law firms, from commercial giants to specialist practices.

This year’s edition is packed with feedback from current trainee solicitors with genuine, first-hand experience of undertaking a training contract. The content of The Lex 100 verdicts is truly ‘from the horse’s mouth’.

Our featured firm profiles also contain information from The Legal 500, our sister publication. The combination of Lex’s trainee feedback and the thoroughly researched information on firm performance sourced by The Legal 500 makes for an exhaustive research tool.

Our practice area insight pieces are designed to give you just that: an insight into different areas of law, as told by firms who are leaders in their fields. And the career clinic is always on hand to guide you through the application process, all the way from making an impression at law fairs to succeeding at assessment days.

To ensure that you keep up to date with all things Lex, follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn. You can also sign up to the newsletter.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any comments, queries or suggestions. We love to hear from our audience and are constantly striving to bring you a Lex 100 which equips you with all the tools that you need in your search for a training contract.

I wish you every success for the academic year ahead. And remember, never give up!
