Law Graduate - Help!


Hi, this is my first post here so just wanted some advice -

I graduated in the summer from Warwick with a 2:1 in Law, but I never got round to applying for TCS (general laziness which I regret now !)

Anyway, I was just wondering what effect that has on my prospects ? Do they favour applications from 2nd year students ? I have 3 weeks experience at law firms, so hopefully that will help ?

Also, when is the best time to apply for someone in my situation, becuase all the tc applications close on July 31, when should I aim to apply ?

Thanks everyone
