We look for a strong academic record. You’ll need excellent results from GCSE (or equivalent) onwards, and a good 2:1 or above (or equivalent). Commercial acumen is vital too. You’ll need to get to grips not only with the world of law, but with the business worlds our clients operate in. Rigorous attention to detail won’t faze you. Nor will the pressure of complex work, deadlines or putting in the extra hours to deliver the most professional job possible.
Another important consideration is that we review applications as they come in. We don’t wait until the application deadline to screen and interview candidates. We advise submitting your application early; however, make sure you get your application form right.
We’ve put together some advice to help you prepare for each stage.
