Hang in there Dominika, we'll be rooting for you!
My name (shock horror) is James, I graduated from the University of Kent in 2018 and still searching for that elusive training contract!
Had a bit of a horror journey even before university (significant adverse developments in my health with chronic health issues meant I was held back by 2 years in sixth form and these issues have plagued me since; not to mention lovely family issues) and have so far been through three cycles without much luck.
Worked for eight/nine months in a clinical negligence reporting company before my health came back and bit me in the behind in March, meaning I had to leave for my own sake.
I did get closer than ever this summer with two firms in my family’s hometown, though bombed in the interviews; will admit, it did leave me despondent but my family and partner have all been incredible.
Re-evaluated my career goals and decided to retry for the City and managed to reignite my interest in the energy and technology sectors so here I am! Thought I’d join up as I’ve lurked long enough!
Welcome James. Sorry to hear about the health issues - we'll do our best to help you get there!
Hi James and welcome to the platform!! Thank you for sharing your story, I am always taken aback by how brave and resilient people are on our forums and I’m so glad you’re giving it another go! Anything worth having comes to those who wait! We will be rooting for you this cycle!!
My name is Harry and I'm a future trainee at Baker McKenzie! I've just graduated from the University of York and set up my own law blog (https://hclark.law.blog/) before the LPC.
I spoke with Jaysen on the Trainee Talk podcast about a month ago (https://soundcloud.com/traineetalk/episode-11-leveraging-your-unique-selling-points) and figured I'd get round to setting up a TCLA account! Looking forward to meeting some new people through the forum.
Welcome Harry, great to see you on here!
Hi Harry, I thought I recognised your name from LinkedIn, I think I saw a post you wrote about the value of taking the plunge and making connections on there, great advice!! Welcome to the forum and it is great to hear you went to York uni, I grew up there and absolutely love my hometown
Hi Alice, thanks for your warm welcome! I fell in love with it too, I'm still suffering from the postgrad blues of moving away from there...
Hey everyone! My name is Viviane and I am a paralegal at Bristows, I am also a part-time LPC student in year 1 at University of Law Moorgate! I have been in the country for about 4 years now, applied for about 5 TC, obtained 2 interviews without success. I have been a bit slow I have to admit but I am more determined than ever and ready to take action to get it!
Loving TCLA, been listening to the podcasts and reading the commercial awareness on Instagram, thanks so much for your hard work and for the information you put out there!
When I am not lawerying my way around, I do martial arts and photography, I especially enjoy travelling and going to remote places.
My name is Saffa and I have completed the LPC from De Montfort University, Leicester. I graduated with a Law degree in 2018. I am currently seeking for paralegal position or training contract.
Fun fact about me is I enjoy dancing and I used to teach dance to children.
Welcome Saffa! Great to have you on here.
Thank you Jaysen. Looking forward to learning a lot from here.
My name is Will and I'm a third year history student at Durham. I'm applying for training contracts this summer.
Interesting fact about me is that I play football for the Durham 2nds team.
Lovely to meet you Will and great to have you join us!
My name is Guilherme and I am a penultimate year law student at the University of Aberdeen (Scottish LLB). Having reached my vac scheme application time, I decided to stop browsing anonymously and sign up to TCLA!
My interesting fact is that I'm Portuguese and have a newly (lockdown) acquired fondness for golf.
I am a bit late introducing myself, but my name is Bea and I am currently undertaking the LPC online at U Law. I completed a non-qualifying law degree from the Netherlands, went onto getting my Masters in IP at QMUL and GDL at U Law Bloomsbury.
An interesting fact about me is that I'm a career changer and previously used to work as a costume designer for TV and film overseas.
I have found TCLA incredibly insightful and the staff super helpful thus far, looking forward to getting my TC this year hopefully (third round of applications!).
Welcome Bea! Wishing you the best of luck this year.
