    TCLA Direct Training Contract Applications Discussion Thread 2021-22 (#1)

    Personally, I find loosely following a CAR structure helps make sure I don’t ramble in these sorts of questions. For example, ‘Context’ would cover what and where your greatest failure was, then ‘Action’ would cover what you did to improve, and ‘Result’ could be what you achieved thanks to your...

    Can you give an example? For example, a time you spotted a particular mistake or produced PowerPoint slides that had a meaningful impact on the project (I.e. X result)?

    I haven’t heard from AS since them confirming last month that I had been offered a place on AS Aspire. Did they separately invite you to the scheme with Dentons?

    It’s important to announce PFOs just as much as it is the successes! We all get rejection and sharing them makes the process seem less isolating. Rooting for you and everyone else to be posting “pleased to announce” soon though!

    Hi @Dheepa! Are you able to share your experience with the scheme? I’m also on it this year and would love to hear more. Were you working full-time while doing it? If so, how did you find balancing your time to attend events etc with work/life commitments? Thank you so much!

    What’re your motivations for self-funding the LPC? I’m just thinking with the SQE coming in if you could be better off trying to either get a funded TC this year and/or seeing how the dust settles on the SQE in the next year or so? That could technically work out cheaper then too.

    Hi Numerius, I’m of course not Jessica but I just want to add a few things based on my experience with similar concerns. I would say that having political experience is a pro, not a con. I know several lawyers who were previously in the political space, and I know of many politicians who were...

    Hi Jessica, I’ve been told that I have a commercial article interview to prepare for. It’s expected to last 25 minutes. It doesn’t look like I’ll receive the article in advance. Do you have any idea how the structure of the interview could go? I think it could be something like five minutes...
