Hi all - I’ve been looking at firms and the majority of them are not hiring for 2021! Does anyone know is this normal or because of Covid?

I planned to move abroad for a year or two but that got scrapped with Covid and now I’m afraid I won’t get a traineeship for years either and I’ll be really lost then

Tbh I’ve seen a good few that are hiring so I wouldn’t really worry tbh, if you still want to go abroad next year I would(providing corona has calmed) there’s always the possibility of being a legal secretary or executive for a year

Plus a few firms don’t actually hire until you have the FE1s completely done (like lemans and Philip Lee)

I could be wrong but most of the big firms usually hire a few years in advance - for example in 2018 they were hiring for 2020/21, unless they happened to have a some spaces left in their 2019 intake. This is due to the fact that most of the top firms hire mostly from their internships now and since interns are usually in their 3rd year, they offer them a training contract to start 2/3 years later. So sometimes when you see that in 2020 a firm is hiring for their 2022/23 intake it's simply because they have filled up their 2021 intake already with internship offers.

I could be wrong on this! But this is just what I've heard and is only relevant to the big firms that hire from internships (there are plenty of smaller firms that won't even look at you until you have your FE1s completed so there are still ootions). Definitely still worth applying though as even if you're made an offer for let's say 2022/23, there's always a massive chance you'll be able to start earlier. Every year they have trainees due to start that don't for a multiplicity of reasons (failed FE1s, signed multiple TCs, decided not to pursue a career in law, decided to do a masters or take a year out etc.)

I have an order confirmation for my application which I made before the exams were postponed. I dont see anything regarding getting it approved when I log in to the Law Society. Do I need to receive an approval email or something?

Would anyone be willing to share their Criminal law notes on Recklessness and Strict Liability? The notes I have are a bit long winded so was hoping for something more condensed and exam focused

Thanks for the reply and advice I’ve been kind of beeezing through those along side other topics so I’ll give them more attention thank you !

I’m the same, my order went straight through. I think the approval might be for first time candidates? Could be mistaken though..

If you log in and go view my dashboard and then into my applications it should show you your application for the exams the date submitted and should say approved

Just wondering if anyone has any advice as to what topics are essential for equity? Struggling to condense it down at the moment

I've heard Dechert has the best trainee salary in the country! (should I say it with a French accent?)
