‘Aspiring Solicitors provided me with key opportunities which allowed me to begin a career in commercial law. AS’ programmes put applicants in the best position to obtain vacation schemes and training contracts and succeed in them.
I participated in the Aspiring Solicitors Commercial Awareness Competition which developed my commercial awareness, teamwork and public speaking skills. As a winner of this competition, AS connected me with top City law firms and allowed me to get my first practical experience in commercial law. This was invaluable.
The AS HeadStart programme also provided me with helpful tips which allowed me to perform well during my vacation scheme which led to my training contract offer. I would recommend that every applicant research the opportunities which AS provides. The AS team invests time, care and effort into these programmes which is reflected in the successes of their candidates.’
