training contract

Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Application for Training Contract at X.

I am writing to apply for a training contract at Y commencing in September 2016. I have recently graduated with a BA degree in X from X University, and I am about to start my GDL course.

A training contract at Y would allow me to train at a well-established, leading international law firm that is committed to excellence in the practice of law promoting ethical standards, diversity and staff individuality. I find particularly interesting Z. Furthermore, I find it highly impressive that Xhas advised on some of the largest transactions. Finally, I am enthusiastic about X commitment to Pro Bono work.

I feel confident that I could contribute substantively to the firm.

Before university, I worked as X. I have learned how tomultitask as well as how to take decisions in decisiveness and determination while at the same time listening to other people’s opinions. I have tremendously enhanced my leadership and teamwork skills, and continue to strive to improve myself on an ongoing basis to increase both my professional and personal integrity as well as to practice and develop creative thinking.

My work experience with Y, who specializes in IP, Competition, Commercial and IT law demonstrates my commitment towards the law profession. As part of my work with Y I delivered legal research and participated in legal meetings with both clients and solicitors regarding legal cases in his primary fields of expertise.

I had the opportunity to write an honours thesis on X for which I received a first class grade.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Yours sincerely,
