    Found tons of programs offered by top firms online for first years. I would assume that the competition for this is intense but does anyone know how hard it could be?

    I'm assuming that the firms will account into your grades, existing CV and whether you're at a target school. Am I right to assume so?

    What do you guys think?

    It obviously varies. Your grades will of course matter, though you usually apply through an online application system, and then have to complete a test (in some occasions). Your answers on the application form and test results will determine whether you get in or not. A small number of firms also interviews, so bare that in mind.

    There are no target schools for law - if anything, firms are trying to open up.
