Aspiring Solicitors Commercial Awareness CompetitionThe Commercial Awareness Competition 2017/18 team registrations has now closed with 500 teams registered and 1500 Aspiring Solicitors members entering! A record year for the competition which promises to be an even more impressive competition this year (if that was even possible)!

Despite an amazing last day flurry from Sussex and Bristol, Queen Mary clung onto the most registered teams top spot!  Congratulations Queen Mary University London!  Time will tell after each round whether you maintain your top spot of teams in the competition…!  We will update you all after each round so ensure you follow the updates!

We will shortly be circulating an email containing the link for registered teams to book their Round 1 call with Aspiring Solicitors.  Ahead of that email, we will email all registered teams interim next steps to help prepare for Round 1.  Best of luck to all entrants!
