    yes, I'm a solicitor with 2 1/2yrs PQE
    Ah
    I've been applying/am still in the process of applying for a training contract. I'm always unsuccessful though
    I have no law work experience and I have desperately tried to obtain some, as I know this is a really important factor, but I either don't hear back from the firm at all or I am told they cannot accomodate my request.

    That must be disheartening. I had no legal work experience at all when I applied for my TC though - I had to work every vacation of uni in order to afford to be there so didn't have time.

    What area of law do you want to go into?

    PM me if you want any advice.

    It certainly is. I feel like giving up but no other career path particulalry interests me. Law has taken over my life!

    You had no legal work experience :eek: So many firms seem to be big on taking on someone who has work experience. What size firm did you secure your training contract with?

    I may take you up on your offer and PM at some point

    It's quite a big one, not a firm as such though. If you read back through the discussion, you'll get an idea of what I do :p:

    Feel free to take up the offer - I've got a bit of mentoring/coaching experience as well as law and life etc.

    Feel like negativity is consuming me, feeling really irritated around my family because they are quite negative, and stress from everything else. I've had about as much as I can take.

    I know how that feels, feels like nothing makes you happy, just have to keep trying though and find something to distract you from the feelings! can you do anything to relax? if your'e stressed that won't help with how you feel, if you need to talk then feel free to message me :hugs:
