The website www.LawCareers.Net (LC.N) is The Training Contract & Pupillage Handbook's online sister.
The website is the most sophisticated resource available to tomorrow's lawyers today. It is designed to offer a one-stop guide to joining the legal profession,
and is relevant to candidates from their secondary education right up to the day they formally join the legal profession, and beyond. On LC.N you can find vital
information about what it means to be a lawyer, how to go about becoming one, where to apply and much more besides.
The site's key features include comprehensive directories of 1,000 firms, 200 chambers and 100 law course providers, all searchable under a number of
criteria including size, location and type of work. Firms appearing on the site have various levels of exposure, from a basic listing up to a fully
expanded entry including firm details, career spotlight, featured lawyers and online brochure.
The entire site was redesigned and improved in 2012, making it easier to use and more pleasing to the eye. Our exhaustive editorial ranges from advice
on different career paths, to life as a solicitor or barrister, to alternative routes into the law. We offer the only extensive list of application
deadlines for training contracts and vacation schemes, not to mention a rolling news service, an online diary to see which firms are travelling to your
area to meet you, and features designed to better your knowledge of both the legal profession and its recruitment process. Two other sections deserve
special mention: the Burning Question, which is a weekly Q&A written by a leading firm designed to get you thinking about commercial issues, and Meet the
Recruiter, where we chat to individuals at firms and sets who are at the sharp end of recruitment and who you need to impress. MyLC.N is a customisable
area within which you can store information from both LC.N and elsewhere. You can save details of potential employers and make notes in MyFirms, store
links in MyLibrary, refer to your personalised MyCalendar and store information and links in MyPages. MyLocker, designed in conjunction with online
application system Apply4Law, is a central hub where you can store key information about yourself in order to transfer it into the application forms
of participating firms. And in 2011, MySelf was born. Knowing one’s strengths and weaknesses is essential. MySelf is designed as a practical tool to
analyse and record this information and keep track of your general progress towards identifying, acquiring and demonstrating the attributes you need
MyLC.N users also receive LC.N Weekly. The free weekly newsletter
