Future Trainee Solicitor
Hi! Nice to meet you :D
Sorry to bother you, I cannot seem to get on to TCLA Premium after you kindly awarded it today. Can you help? Perhaps I need to make the payment? Thanks
Hi Jaysen, I am thinking about purchasing a mock interview- would I be able to have it before Monday as that is when my interview is, I just wanted to check before pay.
Thank you in advance,
I'm in my final year at Uni and an international student. I'm finding it hard to get past the application stage and have received 7/13 rejections so far this application season. As my visa is also set to expire soon, I was hoping you could help me with an application which I could then model other applications on?
Thanks in advance
Good to hear from you. You can check out the requirements for an application review here: https://www.thecorporatelawacademy.com/application-review-2/.
Alternatively, feel free to share a couple of paragraphs in our public feedback forum: https://www.thecorporatelawacademy.com/forum/forums/public-feedback-forum.69/
I remember you responded to a GDL question of some sort and wanted to ask you about the GDL past papers. How in the world do I access them on the ULaw Elite site?
How did you find the Legal method exam?
I did go to ULaw but for the LPC not GDL (I studied law).
Sorry i can't be much use. You may not be able to access them because the term hasn't started (but I can't say for sure).
Thanks for your response! :)
Hey Christy! Just read your article and I thought it was great :)
Thank you! That is very kind of you. I hope it was somewhat helpful!
What suggestions would you give (ie: websites, other resources) when it comes to doing research on a firm's competitive advantage?
Hey Jaz, do you want to post here: https://www.thecorporatelawacademy.com/forum/threads/shearman-sterling.62/. We can then keep all the S&S questions in one place.
Great article, Ginny!
I was wondering: would you advise reapplying to a firm you had previously been rejected from? Asking for a friend.
Keep up the good work
If I may add something quickly -
Some firms have a policy not to re-interview applicants such as Jones Day and Linklaters.
However, many other big firms such NRF are very open to applicants re-applying, and it is a big plus because you have already developed a nuanced view of that firm which is very specific so it helps a lot to re-apply.
Hi Alex, thank you! I am glad you enjoyed my article :)
In terms of reapplying to firms you have already been rejected from I would say follow Sameer's advice.
However I have advice in terms of quality/quantity of applications. Last cycle I think I applied to about 11 places. and looking back I realize that quality was lacking from some of them. So this year I am thinking of narrowing down the applications to 5/6.
What is the best way to send you a headshot?
If you click on my picture, you should see an option to "start a conversation". This will send me a private message and you can upload the photo there.
Thanks for checking!
Hi NAremu, I noticed you had interviewed at CC, Kirkland & Linklaters - congratulations! I am starting my law degree this October, so I recognise this is early days for me, but I want to get a head-start really. How do you think I can best prepare for the application process?
I suggest you have your applications reviewed by someone if you can. You could also send your first applications to firms that aren't your favourites. Even first year schemes seem to be super competitive.
That seems to be the case. Unfortunately it seems that the firms that are at the top of my list have the earliest deadlines - which is frustrating. So I suppose reviews would be the best way to go!
Ah yes bit of a catch 22. Best to apply well in advance of the deadline for your chosen firms but that means you don't get much time to practice!
How can I go about setting up a mock interview please?
Many thanks in advance
Re White & Case: the focus is on your application form, then why W&C, why law, some normal competency questions + a number of questions about what the trainee role involves and trying to assess your response to typical situations trainees might find themselves in
Lovely thanks Denisa :)
