Brexit report: leaked
MPs have now agreed to make available the leaked report on the economic impact of Brexit. Graduates will be expected to demonstrate their commercial understanding of Brexit in a training contract and vacation scheme interview, so knowledge of the implications of this report is a must.
The report highlights how almost every part of the UK economy would suffer following its withdrawal from the EU. No 10 has now said that MPs and peers will be able to see the report on a confidential basis. You can read more on BBC News.
Aspiring solicitors should take note that a law firm is looking to see whether you understand wider issues in politics and in the economy, not least because such decisions have direct implications for both law firms and their clients.
