Commercial law is one of the most competitive fields for graduates to get into. There are only ~7,000 training contracts offered by City law firms each year, meaning just 1%-2% of training contract applications are successful. 

Students therefore need to do all they can to get the competitive edge. Having great academics just isn’t enough. For a small minority, personal connections support their efforts to gain knowledge and experience. However, the majority need support and expert guidance to give them the best chance to succeed. 

And this support and guidance isn't easy to access...

  • Unreliable advice

    It can be hard to know who to trust. Free advice varies wildly in quality, often consisting of generic, surface-level guidance, or insights from authors who lack the necessary experience and expertise.

  • Inaccessible insights

    If you lack legal industry connections, it can be difficult to access essential career and law firm insights, key industry knowledge, and an understanding of what firms are truly looking for. Law firm websites give little away.

  • Lack of independence

    Many insights and resources out there are created by people or organisations who lack the freedom to provide honest, objective and holistic insights into their professional experiences, especially when it comes to discussing their roles and firms.

  • Financial commitment

    Other resources can be incredibly expensive - be that coaching programmes, workshops, e-learning, or one-on-one application and interview guidance - meaning this option is often out of reach for most.

  • Time commitment

    Each application requires a significant time investment, in part because of the time it takes to research, collate and verify the advice and insights needed to stand out on application forms and in interviews
