This new book presents a definitive guide to securing a training contract and becoming a solicitor in England and Wales.

It takes the reader through the academic stage of training, looking at the pros and cons of the path of a law degree or law conversion, and discusses the vocational part of the training, and goes on to cover the application process for a training contract, discussing what firms are looking for, how to target applications, and the options available if unsuccessful.

The book draws on the authors own experience of qualifying, as a solicitor as well as her insight gained from being a Careers Development Co-ordinator. It also includes a number of contributions from law students, trainees and recently qualified solicitors, through to senior partners on everything such as first steps into law, how to make the most of your studies, and how to impress at interviews.

The various law firms and practice areas are discussed, and also how the legal sector may change in the future following the Legal Services Act 2007 and key trends.
