Most firms have a deadline for applications in June or July but many have earlier deadlines, especially for non-law students. Make sure you check out their website so you don't get caught out.
Firms can require you to send them a CV and covering letter, or ask you to complete an application form in writing or online. Click on the logos below to to visit the graduate recruitment sites of leading law firms, or follow the links to see their recruitment brochures and application forms.
