  • Hi Jessica. I am having a hard time perfecting my answer for the 'why international law' because I am applying to some international law firms. Do you have any advice on how I can go about this so that my answer isn't generic? Thank you.
    Hi Jessica

    Do you have any advice for Trainees about to enter their last seat/interview for an NQ role?

    Many thanks

    Have you identified where you want to qualify? If that your final seat and if not is it closely related?

    Hi Jess
    Thanks for your response.
    Yes I have identified where I want to qualify. It’s not my final seat (it’s the seat before).
    Also, every thread I go into there's always a super helpful response from you and it's been a huge help in answering tons of burning questions of mine - a massive thank you for sharing your insights!
    Hi Jessica,

    I managed to secure some vacation schemes in 2018 but have had little success in recent cycles. I think my answers are strong but I think there is a possibility that my extenuating circumstances for my A-level grades might be a hindrance. Do you have any tips on how best to navigate the mit circs section in terms of wording?

    Do you want to PM me with details of your ext Circs?
    Hi Jessica,

    I am a practicing lawyer in India and I have cleared my MCT exam under QLTS Scheme. I also got LLM offer from the UK university.
    So with this aforesaid qualification, after my LLM can I apply and get a training contract before clearing my OSCE exam?

    If you are looking to take the QLTS, then a training contract would not be appropriate for you as you would have qualified
    Hi Jessica,

    I was informed today by Jaysen that I will be able to attend the crash course. With regards to reviewing applications, I understand that you required the applications by the 31st of October. As I received the confirmation today, is it possible for me to please email my application?

    Thank you,
    Asha

    Hi Asha

    Of course - not a problem if you have just found out you are attending.

    Please send it to [email protected] by 9.00am on Wednesday and I’ll have time to review it

    Hi Jessica,

    Apologies for replying to your message so late. I am still learning how to use the TCLA website and I did not know how to check if you had replied to my message. I understand that I missed the deadline you set for me but if you have the time and are willing to look at my application, I would really appreciate it!

    Apologies again,
    Asha
