    Hey everyone! My name is Amy and I am a non-law student, who is hoping (one day) to secure a TC! This is my first application cycle and wow, what a journey it has been 😅 I have been stalking the forums of TCLA for quite a while, and thought I should start actively contributing where I can.

    I have a background in Chemistry, and I'm currently doing a Masters in engineering/chemistry, with a focus on renewable energy (and right now, at this very moment, should be writing my thesis hahaha). I'm hoping to one day utilise this to contribute to sustainability issues, from & within the legal sector.

    I'm really looking forward to engaging more with the TCLA community - I have learnt so much already and I'm excited to get involved, be proactive and watch other people be successful in securing their dreams (whilst hopefully, doing so myself)!

    Hi @AvniD !
    Thanks so much - I’m really excited to start my journey and learn as much as I can about the legal world.

    I’m primarily focusing on firms with a presence in Manchester eg. Addleshaw, Mills & Reeve, Brabners etc. I’ve never seen an application process quite like what the legal world has, but I’m hoping the more I go through, the better I will become.

    I was actually going to ask whether you (or anyone!) could maybe point me in the right direction to learn more about law to understand the jargon when the time comes that I reach interview/engage with firms? I’ve been meaning to do this for a while but just unsure where to start…
