The Young Lawyer Recruitment Programme

Saturday 17th March 2018 - University students

University College, London (UCL)

(see tabs above to learn more about the timetable of each day)


    Do you aspire to work for a Magic Circle law firm or a prestigious set of barristers’ chambers? The Young Lawyer Recruitment Programme is the world’s first course designed to teach you the specific techniques required to secure a training contract at a City law firm or pupillage at a set of chambers.

    You will be taught by highly-accomplished legal professionals in how to excel at the variety of applications, interviews, assessment centres and tests that you will be faced with.

    There are also two hours of the day dedicated to an interactive panel discussion and networking session with high-ranking lawyers. This will give you the opportunity to make exclusive contacts and gain valuable information from people on the inside.

    You will be specifically coached on how to:

    • Create a ‘winning’ application form
    • Use certain key words and phrases to succeed in your interviews
    • Stand out from your competitors in the assessment centres
    • Make contacts in the industry who will act as your mentors

    This programme provides a unique opportunity to put yourself ahead of the competition for some of the most exclusive graduate jobs in the UK. You will be taught that success is not a matter of luck - there is a specific formula for breaking into the best organisations which we shall instil within you.

    The day is split up into two halves – the first dedicated to training contracts (9am-2pm) and the second to pupillages (2.30pm-6.30pm). You can choose to attend either one or both depending on your requirements.

    Programme Fee: £180/student for the whole day or £120 for one half of the day. If 2 or more places are booked students receive a 10% discount. Enter code GROUPYLR at checkout to benefit from this.
