    I am currently a part-time LPC student at The University of Law hoping to find entry level Paralegal/Document review roles in city law firms.

    I have gained over a year's worth of legal work experience in well known national law firms but recruiters keep turning me down because of my lack of City experience.

    Does anyone have advice on how to get a foot in the door of a City law firm?

    Any suggestions on entry level positions I should be targeting? Or should I wait until I finish the LPC and hope that more opportunities will be open to me then.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Finishing the LPC will help.

    Try temp agencies that specialise is providing paralegal temps rather than fixed term contracts though, especially if you are studying part-time.
