Default Training Contract applications

Hi guys!

Can anybody tell me when I should ideally be sending off applications for training contracts? I am going on my final year of law school in the UK and have got pretty good grades for my second year exams. Looking at applying for part A in April next year and taking the exams during the October-November period.

Hi Sir!

You should be sending out your TC applications shortly after you get your year 2 results (Ie. from August to November of your third year).

Do also note that the timing for Part A has been changed:
  1. Graduate from Uni (August)
  2. Relevant Legal Training (6 months - August to January)
  3. Part A (5 months - February to June)
  4. Part B (6 months - July to December)
  5. Training Contract (6 months - January to June)
  6. Called to the bar (whole process from graduation should take about 2 years)
