Legal Cheek launches new iPhone app with graduate recruitment deadline alerts

Free and easy-to-use future lawyer essential

As students across the land gear up for summer training contract application season, Legal Cheek today officially launches its new graduate recruitment-focused iPhone app.

The app brings together the Legal Cheek news feed with our Key Deadlines Calendar and firms, chambers and law school profiles and Most Lists. But it goes one step further than the website by automatically sending key application deadline alerts for both firms and chambers direct to your phone.

There is also a facility to comment on news stories, and a mode that allows users to continue browsing while offline.

Legal Cheek publisher Alex Aldridge said:

“We spoke to our core readership — undergraduate law students — and the consensus was that they wanted an enhanced app that integrated our news, independent law firm and chambers profiles and Key Deadlines Calendar in a more convenient and usable way. I then handed over large parts of the project to our young team, who with the help of our expert app designer have come up with a brilliant product that works very smoothly and is completely free.”

“Free”.

Not good enough. Happy to confirm you’d have to pay me to induce the effort necessary to even consider getting this. And then I’d decide not to because I don’t need LC staff having access to any data on me.

I’m flattered but not interested.

No harm in asking.

Don’t worry, you’re not lady Hale so they won’t know what to do with your data

Can we have an alert for when there’s an article by Katie not about either diversity or “legal celebs”?

No orange RoF app, they’re too stingy to invest in one

Give. Us. Your. Data.

Congrats and good idea but curious as to why just iOS? Android is arguably easier to develop for

Gemma

I downloaded this app this morning. I’ve not actually been able to get on it as I keep getting error messages. Has anybody else had the same problem?

Katie King

Hi Gemma – if you have any further details about these error messages, can you send them to katie.king@legalcheek.com and we can try to help you out.
