Hot in the City.

If a career as a City lawyer is your ambition, keep Friday 11 December free. CityLawLIVE is a one-day careers conference for high-achieving law and non-law students who want to be solicitors at some of the world’s biggest law firms. Many of those firms will be present on the day, making it an excellent opportunity to learn from and network with people who could soon enough be your colleagues. The rest of the newsletter explains the event and who is attending in more detail, while there are also networking tips from the Oracle and news from the wider profession to take in.

Is the City right for you?

There’s never been a more interesting time to join the big business world of City law. Don’t for one minute imagine that you need a certain type of background. City recruiters know it’s all about how far a person can go in the future, not where they’ve already come from.

What is LC.N Weekly?

LC.N Weekly is our free weekly newsletter designed to keep you up-to-date with all the issues relating to finding a career in the legal profession. Each week we analyse firms, write features, seek out the most important legal news stories and much, much more - all sent straight to your inbox. Over 50,000 already receive the newsletter; why not join them?

Each week you will receive:

News: We provide an ongoing news service for you, highlighting key stories from the legal press and elsewhere. The emphasis is, of course, on training and recruitment issues, but we cover all the big law stories too.

Meet the Recruiter: Every fortnight we delve into the mind of a recruiter to find out what they do, what makes them tick and what they are looking for in a candidate. And of course we get them to answer the all-important favourite biscuit question!

Burning Question: All law firms want their lawyers and their trainees to have commercial awareness. This means that you need to know what's going on in the business world. Each week we pose a burning question and ask a real lawyer or trainee to write a short answer.

The Oracle: We often receive requests for help and advice from future trainees and pupils. We've now formalised this process in a 'problem page' format. The Oracle will help you solve all those tricky problems relating to the recruitment process. Letters of particular interest, or letters that serve to illustrate common issues, are published in the newsletters and on the site. Whether published or not, every letter that we receive gets an answer.

Features: Every fortnight we publish a new feature article designed to increase your knowledge of the recruitment process or the legal profession as a whole. Some are produced in-house, others by experts from firms, chambers, universities and bodies within the legal community.

LC.N Diary: Many firms are travelling the country to meet candidates and raise their own profiles. By consulting our diary you'll know what events are happening near you (ie, who will be there, and when and where the events take place).
