If a firm asks for TC applicants to "send their curriculum vitae under a cover letter via email":

Would it be appropriate to send the CL in the actual text of the body of the email, with CV attached?
If not, would it be better to send the CV and CL as separate attachments, but in that case - what could be appropriate to put in the body of the email itself?

Apologies for such a seemingly obvious question which I just can't seem to find an answer to.

My personal opinion is that the email takes the place of the cover letter anyway.

That said, when I receive emails from solicitors, they usually attach whatever they want to say in a PDF letter rather than in the body of the email.

Sorry of that's not much help

Separate cover letter as a pdf. In the email you say Dear [name of HR person], I would like to apply for a training contract with your firm. Please find my covering letter and CV attached. Yours sincerely ...

They will print out your cv and letter for review so better for it to be a separate document.
