Advice from Norton Rose Fulbright, Hardwicke and BPP Law School in hour-long session that is open to all


Join us on Legal Cheek‘s Facebook page at lunchtime for a myth-busting Q&A on how to become a lawyer, with advice from the trainee recruitment team at Norton Rose Fulbright, a barrister from Hardwicke and BPP Law School GDL lecturer and careers programme leader Wenying Li.

Here are some examples of the sort of questions we’re going to be tackling:

Is missing out on a vac scheme fatal to your training contract hopes?

Is it worth applying to firms if you’re doing a vac scheme at one of their rivals?

Does a poor performance in a critical thinking test mean that you’re not suited to being a lawyer?

Are you better off starting out as a solicitor than becoming a barrister later on in your career?

Does a fantastic GDL result make up for poor first year undergraduate grades?

Is doing an LLM a good idea, and if you have one, how should you present it?

How much chance do graduates of non-traditional universities really have when applying to top law firms?

We’ll be discussing tricky questions like these — and any others you’d like to submit — from 1-2pm tomorrow lunchtime on Legal Cheek‘s Facebook page.

Submit your questions directly on the day through Facebook, or in advance to Legal Cheek’s Facebook inbox or by emailing thomas.connelly@legalcheek.com.
