TC, please - you’re the bee’s knees, but so am I.

It’s inevitable that in applying for a training contract or pupillage, you will be competing with a sobering number of excellent candidates, which makes it all the more crucial to make the most of all the help that you can get. This week’s Feature contains useful research tips and criteria to bear in mind when searching for a training contract. Meanwhile, aspiring barristers should be mindful that the Pupillage Gateway closes on 30 April – the LC.N Says has a few useful pointers to help you into the final application furlong. Elsewhere, the Oracle advises someone who will be on holiday during the period in which they have been offered an interview, while we also have News on the JLD’s essay competition and much more. Happy reading!
