Recent testimonials

Hi Jaysen,

I hope you are well.

I thought I would drop you a line to explain why I have decided to cancel my TCLA premium subscription, just in case you thought it was due to dissatisfaction with the service I have received. That is certainly not the case. Rather, I have recently received a training contract offer from Travers Smith and will be accepting the offer.

When I started using TCLA premium earlier this year, I lacked a lot of confidence in my ability to write a convincing application, my ability to assimilate complex commercial topics and my all-round ability to navigate through the TC process in order to actually obtain an offer. However, I began to use TCLA premium for hours upon end each day throughout lockdown 1.0, from the law firm insights you provide in order to better tailor my apps to the various courses you offer aimed at demystifying the elusive notion of ‘commercial awareness’ just to build up an arsenal of commercial aptitude that would leave me in good stead for AC’s and interviews, and my confidence began to dramatically swing in the other direction. I began to get past the application stage in the vast majority of my apps and I began to believe in my ability to perform exceptionally at the AC/interview stage. TCLA has undoubtedly been instrumental in allowing me to unlock my true potential and iron out deficiencies in my all-round approach to the TC process that had been holding me back for years.

I could not be happier with the service I have received and it is the best money I have ever spent. Thank you for your relentless efforts to continuously provide such a first-class service that really does have the capability to change lives.

All the best
