SW Law Firms!


Anyone applied to any south west law firms (so Exeter, Plymouth, Cornwall, etc) and got any hints, tips or advice on applying to them? These are the firms which don’t get much publicity as they’re not in the City but to some they are the most important!!


Hi Mr. Billington,

These firms are just as important. You are right. If I could give you a piece of advice, it would be to treat them as a large city firm. Respect them and their goals by showing eagerness to take early responsibility. Also, since they are smaller, once you get in, it may be easier to communicate with other member of staff and move upwards. So use the opportunity to get to know everyone and name drop on CV/application form if possible.

hope this helps.
