Hi I am applying for training contracts and was wondering if anyone here got in the past without any work experience. I’ve just finished a PhD from Cambridge and have good academics. But I think I’ll be stumped if they ask me why I want a law career without having done a vacation placement. Slaughter and May say that you don’t need to have done one but they’ll still ask about it when the interview comes. Does anyone have any advice about what I could say? I am interested in the law but can’t really show that without experience. Help please.
Thanks in advance
