    As above - thought it might be interesting to see how many training contracts people were applying for. Some swear by filling out a few forms at carefully selected firms, and other seem to be going with a scattergun approach.

    How about you?

    I applied to 11. I was aiming for 10 but had an unexpected opportunity which made applying for the 11th a no-brainer.

    To be quite honest, I had a few days left at the end of July, but had reached the point where I felt that if none of the ones I had submitted by that point were good enough, it was probably a sign I needed some more legal extra-curriculars and work experience.
