Successful Training Contract Application
Every application includes expert line-by-line commentary to help you craft your own successful application
Every year law firms reject thousands of impressive, intelligent and hard-working candidates after a brief skim of their application forms. Your application must stand out from the crowd if you want to make the cut.
Our database of successful applications will help you avoid the trial and error approach. By reviewing best practice examples, you will quickly understand the standard required to succeed.
Our examples will help you to understand how to structure an effective answer, present your own experiences in the most favourable light and ultimately secure your own interview for a vacation scheme or training contract at your dream law firm.
It’s not enough just to read someone else’s successful application. You need to understand exactly why a candidate’s application was successful before you can replicate their success in your own draft.
Every application in our database includes detailed commentary by our team of qualified lawyers from top law firms. We identify why the application was successful and highlight techniques that you can apply to your own application.
Not sure how much of a difference this makes? Check out our video reviews from previous customers of our bespoke application review service. You will benefit from the same expert commentary by lawyers who reviewed these applications.
Application writing is a skill. The best candidates take a structured approach to developing this skill in every example application that they review from our Application Database.
As you read each paragraph, you should think about what the candidate has done well that explains why his/her application was successful and then compare your answer against our expert commentary.
By carrying out this exercise and internalising our feedback, you will quickly learn to identify the hallmarks of a successful application. You can then apply these principles to your own application and maximise your chances of winning a vacation scheme or training contract interview.
We advise against this. In the same way that universities use anti-plagiarism software to compare your answer to a bank of all previous essays that they have received, law firms use similar software to screen applications against all prior answers that they have on file. You can use these examples for inspiration but avoid copy and pasting text directly.
Not yet. We have a strong pipeline of recent successful applications from top law firms which we're working our way through.
We're likely to start buying successful applications in 2023. Please check back then.
Every application included in our database is anonymised. We take care to change any personally identifiable information in the Application Database (e.g. name, university, unique extracurriculars or achievements).
