The Legal Graduate Application Guide
£FREE, released in 2019
As part of a series of posts on LinkedIn, I released a series of PowerPoint slides as a mini-guide for a handful of elements regarding applications for Training Contracts, Vacation Schemes, Open Days, Paralegal roles and other graduate positions in the legal sector. Whilst not wild on detail, it gives a few basics to keep in mind throughout the process. I utilised elements of this guide in my FAQ page, which covers some of the most common questions I get asked from students about applying for such roles.

I do my best to ensure that as many useful resources as possible are provided free of charge. Any time I invest into curating them from home is completely voluntary and I endeavor to make them high-quality and useful. For me, that means trying to answer questions I had throughout the process that I struggled to find answers to.
