Frequently asked questions
  • Do you specify which PGDL or LPC provider I go to?

    No, it is your decision as to which provider you go with.

  • Do you specify which electives I take at law school?

    No, though a good range with transferable skills is preferable.

  • I don't meet your required academic criteria. Can I still apply?

    Although we do stipulate that you should have high academic achievement and ability, we will not automatically discount your application if these have not been gained. The standard of applications we receive is extremely high.

    In order that your application compares favourably with applicants who have achieved the stipulated academic requirements, we would encourage you to ensure that your CV provides the best reflection of your experience and abilities so we can progress your application further.

  • My degree is not from an English institution. What should I do?

    Please refer to the Solicitors Regulation Authority to find more information on the steps you’ll need to take in order to qualify as an English solicitor.

  • I want to take a gap year. Will this disadvantage my application?

    We would expect you to demonstrate how the gap year has developed or benefitted you in some way.

  • Do you offer paralegal or legal assistant vacancies?

    Yes.

    Paralegal positions are recruited through the training contract process. Legal assistants are longer-term career options and any vacancies of this nature would be advertised on our usual vacancies list.
