Nah - if a small firm says 'with a view to a TC' it's often just what is says on the tin. Often you will get a TC unless your face really doesn't fit or you screw up...

Just find out how many paras they have got...

Paralegals are legally trained, cheap and can often do pretty much what junior sols can. It makes perfect sense for a law firm to have as many as possible. The dangling carrot is common, especially in smaller firms, since it keeps the paralegals motivated while leaving the firm entirely within their rights to just keep it dangling for as long as possible without actually providing the TC.

As soon as you qualify,and NQ will not often accept being paid peanuts, which often go hand in hand with paralegal positions, hence no longer commercially beneficial. If the offer of a TC is real, then it should be in the contract of employment, not just verbal.
