I was looking at joining the £30 subscription and was wondering if anyone had any views on it. Was it helpful or was redundant and a waste of money?

For the £30 package I'm looking at it offers 1 free application review a month (with additional reviews at a cost), access to interview tips/practice, successful applications and cover letters, law firm insights and perhaps the most tempting part of it is the commercial awareness course.

I don't think it's worth it.

You can access all of those things you mentioned for free online if you know where to look. Only the application review is at all useful. For that I would instead recommend speaking to the careers service at your uni and to friends in your year/years above (ask them if they can review it).

But I would understand and not necessarily contest the value of a one-off application review service.

Do you know where I could find the resources I mentioned for free? Thank you so much for your comments though!

step 1: go to google
step 2: type "interview tips"

:rolleyes:

If you want to be a lawyer you're going to need far better intuition and research skills than this.

Oh thanks but I was referring to access to successful applications/cover letters and in depth law insights. Having scoured the internet, I was looking for a master database of information as you had indicated was present. Thank you though for your help

I have previously found several such cover letters online; from my uni's career service, and from my friends at uni (both in my year and the years above). Easily 10+ high quality successful cover letters. No need at all to pay for such a thing.

I question the wisdom of relying on commercial awareness guides primarily written by fresh graduates with limited working experience. Interesting business model – charging £30 to aspiring lawyers, and then having the same aspiring lawyers generate content for the website to improve their CV.
