It is useful to meet us at any events we attend, come prepared and ask us questions. Candidates that make a good impression at events will be remembered when going through the written application process. Use the information you gain from attendance at events to support your application.
Be clear about your grades; ensure they correspond with your award certificates.
Whilst strong academics are a given, we value candidates with ongoing work experience in any sector. Commercial skills gained through dealing with customers, clients and working under pressure are all transferable to a legal environment.
If you have mitigating circumstances ensure you indicate this clearly on our online application form and carefully follow our instructions.
If you are lucky enough to gain a place on our summer vacation placement, ensure you make a good impression - this could fast track you to securing a training contract.
