What makes a candidate right for a client?


Education provides the foundation to any legal career, and while a strong degree from a reputable university will always stand you in good stead. However, the completion of the LPC, or undertaking the CILEX, and the alternative routes to qualification, such as the completion of the GDL, can provide unparalleled benefits.


Relevant legal experience can provide access to your ideal position within the legal world. Whether voluntary or paid work, experience within the private practice can prove invaluable in the search for your next role. Solid post qualification experience (PQE) within a particular area of law can lead to improved career prospects and opportunities for progression.


The ability to 'hit the ground running', or to 'work autonomously' are phrases constantly given by hiring managers & partners when seeking for a new addition to their firm. Whilst support may be on hand to assist the individual integrate into their new role, someone who has the experience of assisting or managing a familiar caseload is often seen as a valuable addition to an expanding department.
