Your application is quite strong really considering you have lots of broader experiences other than law. The one thing i could only imagine that would put off a law firm is purely that you are not a regular candidate and it could be difficult to gauge where you fit in

You sound like an interesting chap or chapess, but the way you are presenting it to us, the big question I would want an answer to, if I was a recruiter, is how come you travelled extensively over the five years that family reasons kept you near home?

You don't seem to be being straight about something; this is your right but what you are saying doesn't hang together quite.

Of course, your other credentials are great but I would think you will need to explain in a clearer manner your five year 'gap'.

Why so set on MC/SC, as opposed to one of the renowned entertainment law firms?

I would say you need to get some more legal work experience as you don't really have enough to show 'a commitment to law' - you only have the bit you did in your final degree year.

I think you would have to explain where your interest in law was coming from - how come you didn't just apply for a TC in the normal way when you were at Uni? Why the lag between leaving university and now - what happened to your law ambition then/or when did your law ambition develop?

Re: entertainment law firms - from my experience and for various reasons, the entertainment industry really isn't for me in the long term.
Even so, it is probably worth applying for firms with that sorts of client-base and speciality department, because they'll find you an interesting candidate. It doesn't mean you have to end up qualifying into that department in the end.
