TCLA's Free Mastering Applications Course
Learn to Write an Application that Stands Out
Law firm applications are some of the hardest applications out there, not only because firms receive hundreds or even thousands of applications a year, but it's also because application technique is very important. If you don't answer the questions properly, you'll be rejected.
The aim of this course is to fast-track your understanding of good application technique. That includes strategies to answering the most popular application questions, as well as how to carry out firm research and leverage your experiences on an application form.
In this course, five future trainee solicitors across a variety of City law firms share their top tips to writing a successful vacation scheme or training contract application. We also share our best advice, having been through the process ourselves, and having reviewed hundreds of applications.
This course is brought to you by five future trainee solicitors:
- Kayley Castle, Future Trainee Solicitor at Slaughter and May
- Vincent Fraser, Future Trainee Solicitor at Clyde & Co
- David Stuart, Future Trainee Solicitor at Taylor Wessing
- Nikita Patel, Future Trainee Solicitor at CMS
- Tamzin Robson, Future Trainee Solicitor at Foot Anstey
