In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one aspiring lawyer is concerned that a poor result in her contract law module has scuppered her chances of securing a training contact.

“Just wanted some advice. I finished my first year law at Queen Mary earlier this summer. Just as a question. In QM, our contract law is broken up into contract law one and contract law two, in that way, it is two 15 credit modules. For my contract law one, I only managed to obtain a 55, that is a poor 2:2. Do you believe this will severely hinder my applications for vacation schemes and training contracts later on? I heard that contract can be a veto of sorts in some City firms. Overall, I have performed to a high 2:1 to 1st standard. What do you think? Thank you for your time!”
