has anyone applied to BCLP direct TC? I know it opened in Sept and closes in may - is Jan too late to apply as it is rolling?
I attended an event with them and Grad Recruitment said they look at direct TC applications in July so anything until the deadline would be considered. Do you know if people who have already applied for direct TC been progressed?

heya thanks so much this is very helpful! no not at all! I'm at that stage when I'm thinking which app to do next and didn't want to apply if my chances were already low! that is great news though thanks . do you know if they recruit many off the direct route? because i know some firms only look at direct apps if they haven't filled up the VS etc

Has anyone used the phrase “one’s” in an app or is it a phrase that’s frowned upon?

It’s perfectly fine from a grammar perspective but pretty old fashioned/not how you would write in a law firm.

“my” would be far more suitable in one’s opinion ;)
