Aspiring Solicitors members have secured 17 training contracts and 13 vacation schemes in the last 4 weeks. We are absolutely thrilled for all of you and look forward to assisting even more Aspiring Solicitors members this month through a further 18 hours of Ask Us slots next week and legal mock interviews at law firms!

This is what some of the students have had to say…
Future vacation scheme student at Freshfields (Founder Member)
“I wanted to send you an email to thank you for your advice and support when applying to firms, particularly Freshfields. I had my assessment centre with the firm and am very pleased to say that I had a call from the partner and I have been successful in securing a Vacation Placement for Summer 2016. There can be no doubt that I would not have been able to do it without your help, and the opportunities that have been made available to me through Aspiring Solicitors. All of the advice provided has been so valuable, and the phone sessions with Gemma have really helped me prepare for the assessment centre and give me an insight as to what to expect. I look forward to seeing you at further events and keeping you updated on any further progress. Once again, many thanks for everything that you do,”
Future vacation scheme student at Norton Rose Fulbright (Founder Member)
“I’ve just received the call from NRF, and I got a place on the vacation scheme!!! Thank you both so much for everything you’ve done for me, I couldn’t have got this far without your help! I’m incredibly excited to get started! Kindest regards, and thank you again so much! ”
Future trainee at Simmons & Simmons (Affiliate Member)
“I just wanted to let you know grad recruitment phoned me Wednesday and I got the Simmons and Simmons offer-I am absolutely ecstatic! Thank you for all your help and guidance over the last 18 months! Especially organising the AS S&S open day and putting me in touch with Baldeep, his help and support before and during the scheme was invaluable. I very much hope to be able to offer the same assistance to other aspiring solicitors in the future- for now, law school…..!”
Future Trainee at Linklaters (whilst Linklaters is not an Affiliate of Aspiring Solicitors, we have still helped a number of students secure a TC with the firm)
“I just wanted to share my good news that I’ve just been offered a training contract at linklaters!! I am honestly so happy that I burst into tears! Just wanted to thank you for all your advice and support. I don’t think I would have even got past the application stage without everything I learnt at the aspiring solicitors events! Thank you so much! I still can’t even believe it!”
Future trainee at Clifford Chance (Please note that despite Clifford Chance not being an Affiliate of Aspiring Solicitors, we have still helped a number of students secure a TC with the firm)
“I write bearing good news. Having recently attended an interview at Clifford Chance, I was delighted when they called me 2 days later to offer me a TC. I cannot overemphasise all the help that AS has provided me with: from the sagely a patient advice given to me by many of your AS Ambassadors to the valuable experience at your AS London Springboard Summer School earlier last year, from the countless evenings I spent preparing for the AS Commercial Awareness Competition to attending other events as organised by AS. Thank you once again for all the confidence you’ve helped me build in myself that helped me get to where I am today!”
