About Us

We believe that everyone should have an equal shot at pursuing a career in law.

We created ZipLaw to:

  1. Make news understandable and enjoyable to read to help our readers develop their commercial awareness; and
  2. Explain how news impact Law Firms so that our readers can understand how law firms operate and stand out in law firm applications.

We do this via a combination of tools including our free newsletters, a weekly roundup newsletter of the top news of the week, and the ZipTracker database (containing our analysis hundreds of court cases and deals law firms advised on, and law firm news).

If you would like to learn more about the ZipTracker and other tools in the ZipLaw+ subscription, click here.

To date, we have helped hundreds of students and graduates secure training contracts and other legal jobs at their dream law firms. We are here to help. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch, and we hope that you will join us!

Who's behind ZipLaw?

My name is Ludo. I'm a qualified solicitor. 4 years ago, I used to be a law student, desperately trying to secure a TC.

But after receiving almost 20+ rejections in my applications I started doubting whether this was the right career for me. No matter what I did, I was told my Commercial Awareness wasn't up to scratch.

I write all our content based on my first-hand experience of working in law and understanding of what graduate recruitment looks for in applicants. This allows me to give you unique insights that will make you stand out in law firm applications.
