In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one aspiring solicitor wants to know how many training contracts they should apply for.

“Hello Legal Cheek. I am in the process of applying for training contracts at commercial law firms in London and I want to know what approach other people are taking, specifically how many they’re applying for. I hear people stressing the importance of quality over quantity but I wondered if there is any harm in applying for as many as possible!”

Join us this Thursday (19 January) for a virtual training contract application masterclass with lawyers and graduate recruitment specialists from Hogan Lovells, Shoosmiths, Charles Russell Speechlys and The University of Law. Apply to attend.
