    Hello!

    Does anyone have any tips for the Farrer & Co cover letter? Its only 350 words and doesn't give any guidance. Usually I would speak about why law, why firm, why me but in a later question, they ask you to answer 'why do you want to work at Farrer & Co'.

    Should I leave the cover letter to why law and why me?

    Thank you!

    Kinda think you’ve answered your own question ha. I’d go with why law and cover some key skills for why you.

    Not yet but I wouldn't necessarily expect to yet. I attended their assessment centre back in February and they said I'd hear again in about August/September.

    350 words is actually a really small amount for a cover letter, so yeah, just leave it to those two focuses.

    It’s actually quite helpful of them to give you a separate question for why us, rather than forcing you to cram too much in too little detail into a short cover letter.
