We’ve shared ours and now we want YOU to feature your advice on Instagram

Over the past few weeks members of the Legal Cheek team have put together a video series with their top tips on securing a training contract and how to excel in your legal studies.

Now we want to hear from you! We are looking for your tips on anything from advice on securing that all important vacation scheme or TC or how to survive an LLB, GDL or LPC.

All you need to do is:

1) Record a short advice video clip of under a minute
2) Email us at with your submission along with your Instagram username

Your advice clip will feature on our Instagram page and we will tag your Instagram account in the caption.

Check out the latest videos in the advice series from the Legal Cheek team:

First class Bristol law grad Sam Jewell shares his words of wisdom on needing balance in your schedule to thrive during your LLB studies.

Future RPC trainee Sophie Yantian encourages digging deep in your research ahead of interviews to know exactly why you want to join the firm.

First class Durham and GDL graduate Sky Martle shares how a good routine is key to keeping on top of your work.

Future Bevan Brittan trainee Jemina Kauppinen encourages developing your own skills instead of comparing yourself to others.

Future Mayer Brown trainee Rona Ankrah warns against falling into the trap of just reading the grad rec website when researching firms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
