Always keep your CV concise

Keep your CV to no more than 2 pages with simple design and readable font style and size.

Be accurate

Be accurate

Ensure your application is free from spelling and grammatical errors – attention to detail is a fundamental skill for a lawyer.

When it comes to interviews, getting feedback on how you come across in an interview scenario from someone you don’t know can be really helpful before the event.

Make the most of your work experience

Make the most of your work experience

If you have completed legal or non-legal, commercial or any other kind of work experience, think about what you have learned and observed. You may, for example, have made a recommendation for improving a process or have handled a difficult customer.

Using examples like this shows that you have learned from your experience.

Research the Firm

Research the Firm

We recognize that you’ll be applying to a number of law firms but it’s your individual approach and attention to our firm that will help set you apart. It’s worth taking the time to focus on each individual application – it may take longer but the effort will be worth it if you secure an interview.

Show a rounded personality

Show a rounded personality

We expect academically successful candidates but your application will stand out if you show that you have experienced life outside the library. Try to demonstrate your responsibilities and your capacity to shape events, committees and outcomes.
