Hi friend, my name is Ludo 👋 If you want to secure a Training Contract this year, you're in the right place.

I've been a Solicitor since September 2022 and loved every bit of it. But getting to this point has been hard.

Many law firms offer training contracts. Problem is there are thousands of students and graduates vying for the same limited spots.

Rising above the crowd is near impossible.

You deserve a proper shot at securing a TC. That is why I created ZipLaw+ to boost your commercial awareness and give you the tools you need to ace your law firm applications.

The Week in 10 minutes 🗞️

Every Sunday I send Ziplaw+ members a roundup of the top news stories of the week. I analyse each one to explain how they impact law firms and their clients.

That way they can catch up on all they need to know plus understand the consequences for law firms in 10 minutes or less.

💡Result? You've done all your commercial awareness reading for the week in 10 minutes.

When I was preparing applications, I struggled with a) picking a news story to discuss; and b) understanding how they impact key industries in which law firms advise.

So I created the Deep Dives newsletters where I pick out a key trend in an industry e.g. manufacturing, private equity, real estate.

I then explain what it all means and how it impacts law firms.

To date I've covered all sorts of trends including the top M&A trends of 2024, top law firm risks of 2024, and the must-know trends in Artificial Intelligence (just to name a few!).

💡 Result? You get unique stories ready to go with all the key points covered so you're ready to stand out in your application or interview, with little to no effort (yay!).

Who's behind this?

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 30+ 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.So I created the tools that now form part of ZipLaw+ and used them to secure a TC and become a qualified solicitor at BDB Pitmans LLP.
