One of my friends in a magic circle trainee cohort said a lot of the other trainees were late twenties/early thirties! So I was curious how old you were when you began your training contract or how old do you hope to be when beginning a training contract?

If all goes well for me, i'd hopefully begin my TC when I'm 28/29!

According to the law society's data, the average age of a newly qualified solicitor is 29 (http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/law-car.../entry-trends/).

At my city firm, and also at the MC firm I trained at, I guess that the average age of trainees is about 25. Most trainees spent a year or two in another job, postgraduate study or working as a paralegal before starting their TC.

I was 22 when I started my TC straight out of uni then LPC but I was one of the youngest in my cohort.

At 28/29 you will be slightly older than average, but there will be plenty of other trainees who are the same age and a few who are older.

If I secure a TC for 2021 then I'll be 27. But most likely I'll be closer to 30

I start in 2020 and I'll be 28 (but closer to 29!)

I was really worried for a while that I'd be much older than all the other trainees, but have since realised a) I don't care and b) like the link jacket posted above, average age of qualifying is late 20s anyway!
