Yes, apologies @Adrian_S - I completely forgot to pick this up and allocate this to someone. If you don't have someone who you want to nominate, @AvniD and I can pick another winner. Please let us know what you would like to do and we'll get it all sorted ASAP!

I’d be delighted if you all could choose someone on my behalf. Thanks, friends!

Wow, thank you so much! I watched one of the publicly available videos from the TCLA to TC series, and was hoping to access the rest of ‘Converting Vacation Schemes Into Training Contracts’, so this could not have come at a better time!

I really appreciate it, I’ve learnt so much from the TCLA community so always happy to help when I can 😊

I am delighted to nominate @s10 for this week 🙌

I was blown away by this post yesterday. This sentiment was echoed by the rest of the team. For example, @AvniD described it as one of the best posts that she had ever read on the forum.

Thank you for sharing your experience and encouraging others in such an authentic and honest way. Your post reflects the community values that we aspire towards.

I will PM you with the details of your prize now.

I really look forward to interacting with you more on the forum in the future! 💪

This week's winner is @lawlondon65 for this post which the Community Manager team found particularly motivational. Posts like this really help to see how pursuing law is not always about taking the "traditional" route and doesn't need to rely on securing a VS or TC at a particular point in your academic career.

Thank you @lawlondon65 for your post. I will be in contact via PM about your prize details.

Thank you so much!! I am really glad I could help people out with the Ashurst application, seeing as it's a brand new system. I am already a premium member however. So does this mean I can switch it for the £5 Amazon voucher? If not, I am just super happy to help out this community which has helped me so much this cycle!

Hi @George Maxwell, I hope you are well! I found the course very helpful and it is by far the most comprehensive resource I used when preparing for my VS. I went into it confident in my abilities and having an idea of the kind of things to consider and clarify when assigned work, given a group task, etc. I'd recommend it to anyone that has an upcoming VS.

That being said, I was offered a training contract with Baker McKenzie a few days ago following the spring VS! I'll still be attending my other VS in the summer because BM has kindly extended my offer, but I am so pleased with this outcome. Thank you to @Jaysen for starting this platform, and to @Jessica Booker @James Carrabino @AvniD and of course, George for all your responses to my questions and contributions to the forum! I've taken the time to celebrate but wanted to express my gratitude for the forum - the support from the TCLA team and anonymous strangers, the articles that helped me prepare for interview and case study exercises, etc. My inbox is always open to help others on the forum in any way I can. I cannot guarantee quick responses with exams coming up soon 😅 but I'll do my best!
