For a number of years secondment placements involving the UK Bar have been growing steadily. However, gaining access to the best people is not always straightforward with many law firms and in-house legal teams reliant on using legal recruitment companies who depend on advertising and appear to have very little exposure to the UK Bar. Causidicus is different.
