"When researching law firms, candidates should use a range of sources including: firm websites, social media channels, legal and business press and meeting representatives on campus. Representatives may include future and current trainees, associates and partners, as well as graduate recruitment.

Some firms also employ students as campus reps who can provide useful information. However, there really is no better way to find out about a firm than meeting current employees, so sign up for networking opportunities and apply for open days and vacation schemes. Your research needs to be thorough; we expect candidates to have some knowledge of Norton Rose Fulbright's strategy, global expansion and industry sector focus. You can't simply re-hash what we say on our website though!

We like candidates to think about our business and our clients independently, so use a variety of sources to inform your views before you apply or attend an interview."
