Our consultants will write a model training contract application for one law firm of your choice that is bespoke to you. As a precursor, we will review your CV and get you to complete a questionnaire that will provide the basis for our model answers. Model answers to training contract application questions is a good way of helping you to get a new perspective and set you on the right path. Model training contract application writing only applies to competency based questions and does not include your personal details, work experience, university or college grades. Typically, we will cover questions such as why you want to be a lawyer, why this law firm, what makes a successful solicitor, commercial awareness (something you have found of interest in the commercial or legal world), team work skills, difficulties you have faced, etc.
**Please note that the model answer is intended solely for the purpose of giving you an example of a completed application.
We are going to review your CV and then write draft/model answers to your training contract application questions. We are going to use your CV as the basis for the answers. It is a good idea for you to try to answers the draft questions so that we have some kind of a starting point.

TCapp consultants have seen many brilliant UK graduates and undergraduates struggle to find a training contract not because they are not good enough but because year-on-year the legal market is becoming extremely competitive and so must the aspiring trainee solicitors. TCapp consultants have seen many exceptional candidates plod on with perseverance as paralegals in the hope of a glimmer of a training contract or abandon the legal profession altogether. We feel that this is wrong and demoralising and that the system needs to be reformed to embrace this disappointing reality.
TCapp was founded out of a desire to provide help getting a training contract and assist aspiring trainee solicitors in getting closer to securing a training contract and maximising their potential. At TCapp, we realise that it is extremely difficult to qualify as a lawyer in England and Wales in comparison to other jurisdictions. This should not be the case. TCapp consultants are extremely committed to improving access to the legal profession.
Our consultants are pragmatic in their approach, yet exceedingly supportive. This helps to raise the standard of your application and maximises your chances of getting closer to a training contract with a law firm.
