    I understand the advantage for those firms having a steady pipeline by filling up well in advance but surely they have to set aside a few spots every year for drop outs/those who don't pass all 8 by the time they are meant to?

    From what I've heard they usually over-hire every year so they can account for any dropouts, i.e if when the results are out and their pre-trainees have failed they will have enough pre-trainees to compensate rather than hire on the spot

    Are there any big firms NOT in Dublin aha, really only looking into the TC side of things now and I know nothing about them bar the basics tbh. I have no desire to live in Dublin, the rent is astronomical.

    Holmes O'Malley Sexton in Limerick City have a reasonable big office for a firm based outside of Dublin.

    Can anyone who sat company in November remember the questions? Standard enough or any surprises? Thank you!

    it was very standard, two questions were carbon copies of past questions, it was a lovely paper but my mind wasn't functioning that morning so hoping for good news tomorrow!!

    It was a nice paper but corporate borrowing didn’t come up which was definitely a surprise. Also was expecting a question on separate legal personality so that should come up for you in March!

    Arthur Cox are taking on trainees in Belfast now, but I don’t know if they’re using the Irish system

    Is there any value in doing a summer internship as a means to get your foot in the door somewhere and improve your odds of getting a TC? Or is it more of a thing current college students would do?

    Definitely would do one if you could. Firms recruit heavilly from their interns and generally the conversion rate is pretty high.

    I worked for a well-known criminal defence firm for 18 months but left due to some issues, and I am currently doing a masters in the UK. I am thinking of doing an internship with another criminal firm but not sure if criminal firms recruit from their internships? Has anyone had experience of criminal firm traineeships? Thanks!

    Good luck with the results today. If the quality of candidates by this thread is anything to go by, every one of you deserve to pass.

    Just a reminder of the form I created if anyone is willing to help compile some data on pass rates and average grades in these exams.

    https://forms.gle/884G1bmrUHv7YyvXA

    If I get enough numbers I'll post the results in a week so please share far and wide!

    Mine is logging in fine and just says "your results will be released at 11 am 14 January" but my friend has had trouble logging in. Maybe contact that webmaster email?

    I was the same this morning, but just got an email from Paula Sheedy saying IT have resolved the issue and I was then able to reset my password and it worked. This was literally just now.

    I am looking forward to the Law Society website inevitably crashing at 11 and not being able to access my results until an hour or two afterwards.

    Happened to me two days ago and was advised to clear cache and cookies and try again this didn't work for me though.

    What ended up working was inputting the password wrong 1 more time and getting locked out for 15 mins then trying again and it worked.

    If I click on this http://www.lawsociety.ie/fe1results it asks me to login and once I click in it opens on that statement, when I was checking yesterday morning (being overly optimistic) and it had the August results paragraph. I didn't sit exams in August so it just said I don't have results but now when I open it it says results will be released at 11 am

    Thank you! After days of waiting to get a candidate number the panic is real something might go wrong :(

    Is 45 worth a recheck? Doubt we’ll even have results of a recheck for the next sitting?
