    Fancy training in a company alongside professionals of all backgrounds, rather than a law firm? Or are you perhaps a General Counsel trying work out how to take on a trainee into your organisation?

    Chris Benn (Pinsent Masons), Danielle Sharkey (Charles Russell Speechlys) and Katie Barker (Network Rail - seconded to Dentons) all recently trained in-house (and Katie is currently a trainee!). They sat down with Crafty Counsel to bust a few myths, and explain why training in a company is one of the best ways for an aspiring lawyer to develop, fast.

    Chris, Danielle and Katie are all part of the Aspire group of junior in-house lawyers sponsored by LexisNexis - more details here:
