I know the deadline is 31st, but is it worth applying this late?

Yes. The value of applying early is often exaggerated (although it's good to if you can). There are some firms which don't send out any invitations to interview until after the deadline has passed.

exactly as Alexander said, many firm dont even look at apps till after new years, i'm still going to apply, gota send another one out, the more the merrier! but yeah, definitely apply still it's not too late, the deadline is 31st, therefore they accept till 31st, earlier sometimes better but not always so, like for instance if you are about to do something that will make your app better (like i waited till i attended an open day with a firm then sent my application, i sent it later than most people i know but it was worth it), if you have the time to apply do it and good luck!

I (and quite a few of my friends) applied to firms in November, and still haven't heard anything back. I can only assume that they haven't really started interviewing or allocating interview places yet. Some firms, like Ashurst, have probably pretty much filled up their schemes now as they don't interview, but I'd say that on the whole the majority of firms haven't really started their big rounds of interviews.
