Going beyond expectations, challenging conventions and creating lasting value for clients. This is what we are known for. It’s what you could be known for too.

TLT is a place where ambition and drive really matter. We want lawyers that push boundaries, ask questions and can solve complex problems.

But what matters to you? Train with us and you can voice your ideas, get stuck into client work and have input on where and how you work. You’ll join an open and collaborative culture where you can approach anyone for a conversation and get involved in causes that you care about.

Our training programme gives you the opportunity to grow your legal knowledge and business development experience. It puts you right at the heart of the action and is all about giving you real work, creating real results and getting real recognition for your achievements

We work with clients from the Clean Energy, Digital, Financial Services, Leisure, Food & Drink, Public Sector, Real Estate and Retail & Consumer Goods sectors. You’ll get to know their businesses in and out and make a real difference, no matter who you are.

And be sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Facebook.

  • Make sure you read the question and answer it exactly as written. Does it ask how or why? Explain your statements fully. Are there two parts to the question? Make sure you cover both.
  • Don’t use essay language or unnecessary words. Practising lawyers communicate with clients as simply and clearly as possible.
  • Proofread your form before submitting. Have you made any spelling or grammatical errors? Have you written the firm name correctly? Have you used the correct words in context?
  • Structure your answer clearly. Does the answer flow and make sense?

We believe that strengths-based interviews are the best form of interviews for early careers. The interview focuses on your motivations and what you enjoy doing, rather than previous work experience. This allows you to be authentic in your answer and use transferable skills and examples. The questions are standardised, meaning that all applicants receive the same interview with assessors who are trained at interviewing people.

We host a number of assessment centre presentations and workshops to that will prepare you with the necessary skills to excel in group exercises. Go to our events page for more information. 

We are working with our clients to provide secondment opportunities and we aim to have at least one opportunity per cohort rotation.
