Hello Guys, I am a recent First Class LLB Business Law & LPC graduate from De Montfort University. I’m looking to create a blog which focuses on the journey of law graduates who have attended a university which isn’t considered as a red brick or Russell group university. I’m specifically looking for grads who have good A-levels and 2:1 or higher. Please add your first name or initials, degree classification, university, grad year. I’d like to know your experience including: - do you feel like your career team at university helped your enough: importance of vacation schemes, applying for TC, limits you may encounter due to your current uni or even encouraged you to transfer unis. - what were your A-level grades like? Would you have resit exams knowing what you know now? - Reasons for attending your uni or transferring. - did you attempt to apply for VS or gain experience at good law firms or didn’t bother - why not? - after grad, did you get a paralegal job or TC straight away? - did top Law agencies e.g. ‘Law support’ consider your applications? Stories - any regrets or proudness of undertaking a law degree? - are you using your degree in other sectors? E.g finance, recruitment. - any good/bad interviews based on your academic results. - any success stories of individuals receiving a TC at a reputable firm despite your uni. - any other contributing factors? E.g. Family, race, class This blog aims to focus on individuals like myself who are considered as ‘Potentially Excellent’ as they have the necessary requirements to become a lawyer yet the competitive market doesn’t offer a fair chance. Bringing some awareness could help the next generation of law students or even change the view of employers. Thank you in advance!
