Training Contract application tips: from Start to Finish

Bertilla Chow shares her tips on how to apply for Training Contracts.

Where to start, and how many should I apply to?

When considering how many firms to apply to, the recommended number is 6 to 8 firms to ensure you have time for drafting and redrafting the content. Ideally, you have already attended firm events in person or virtually and previously liaised with representatives at law fairs, spending time networking over social media or currently waiting to complete a virtual event. Having shown a genuine enthusiasm, over a blind application, through any interaction with the firm, will reflect in your application and prove advantageous to reaching the next stage.
