Hi All, I'm pleased to say one of our long-time forum members, @Abstruser, has kindly agreed to answer any questions you have on this thread. She is a future trainee at a Magic Circle law firm, and a first-class law graduate. She secured multiple training contract offers in her second cycle of applications as an international, non-EU student. She is currently studying the LPC. You might want to use this thread to ask about how she worked on applications, went about developing commercial awareness or even tips for securing a first. Abstruser will be sharing her advice based on her own journey and experiences, but it's worth noting - there are many ways to approach all of these things and what works for one person might be different for another. Enjoy!
