    I didn't think of it that way before, thank you Jessica! I'll have a think about it before I make any applications

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

    I don't think I will, but qualification in my home jurisdiction has always been secondary to me securing a TC in UK - hence my question

    You bring up good points, thank you! I do think I have a good idea of what practice I'd like

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

    Actually the qualification route in the country I'm in is very unfavourable to UK graduates, with only a pass rate of 40% each year - and there's a study period after I end my contract in 2022 that would bring me beyond March 2024. What I'm doing is more of a failsafe because I wasn't able to...

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

    I just wanted to ask @Jessica Booker, can I apply for a UK-based training contract whilst serving a training contract overseas? I understand that firms like Slaughter and May have a strict policy of not considering candidates that have accepted training contract offers at other firms. But in...

    Linklaters 2019/20 Application

    Fast-track apps don't apply for Direct TC applications. I was a fast-track candidate. My guess is that Linklaters is addressing the applications by decreasing priority - probably the earlier they come back to you, the more they want you.

    2020-21 Vacation Scheme Applications Discussion

    Hi guys, can anyone clarify - can I still apply for Sidley's summer scheme if I was rejected at the application stage for their winter scheme? I wanted to enter the portal to check if this was possible, but it's currently down.

    2020-21 Direct Training Contract Applications Discussion

    If it's helpful - my rejected application for the Freshers Meet Freshfields 2018 event was updated in January 2021, so I really don't think you guys need to be too concerned about when the portal was updated.

    2020-21 Vacation Scheme Applications Discussion

    I don't think you should panic with regards to the dates - my failed application for Freshers Meet Freshfields in 2018 says updated on 4 Jan 2021.

    Received it too! I'm unfamiliar with the application process with Freshfields, does anyone know what proportion of candidates get this, or is it merely procedure?

    Linklaters 2019/20 Application

    I don't mean to be the pessimist, but I really doubt CAPP is the only basis by which they assess the candidates - I've applied to them four times now through this new system, once as a Pathfinder fast-track, and I've yet to secure an interview invite with them. I think it's a balance of your...
