Experts from Norton Rose Fulbright, Hogan Lovells, Herbert Smith Freehills, Mayer Brown, BPP, Kaplan and City Law School on hand to advise in hour-long session open to all


Trainee and junior lawyer salaries may be rising at some top City law firms, implying a heightened demand for rookie legal talent, but the training contract market remains extremely competitive.

How to persuade firms that you are more deserving of an interview than all those other candidates who also have respectable degree results from respectable universities?

To help wannabe lawyers with this daunting task — and answer any other questions as the 30 July training contract application deadline looms — Legal Cheek is hosting a Twitter Q&A where experts from a host of top law firms and law schools will share their wisdom.

On hand to respond to your queries will be Norton Rose Fulbright graduate recruitment advisor Jillian Dent, Hogan Lovells recruitment duo Natasha Sheehan and Monica Smith, Herbert Smith Freehills‘ grad rec chief Carly Gilberg, Mayer Brown‘s trainee recruitment boss Danielle White, BPP University senior academic Tricia Chatterton, Kaplan Law School‘s careers team head Lorraine Petheram and City Law School LPC director David Amos.

The session is from 1-2pm this Wednesday under the #TCapps hashtag. It is open to all and you can ask anything.
