  • I think many people are missing the point here.
    Whether a person has studied the GDL or the LLB is totally irrelevant. What are important are their abilities and skills.
    The law firms are looking to recruit someone special, someone with extraordinary abilities. The reason some applicants are successful, despite not studying the LLB, is that they are able to demonstrate to the recruiters, via the application process, that they possess the right skills for the job, and that there is something "special" about them as a person, something that should make the recruiters WANT to hire THEM and not any other applicant.
    Those applicants who have not been successful at finding training contracts, even though they have gone to Oxford, got amazing A-levels, got a 2.1 in the LLB, are so because despite being able to demonstrate excellent academic ability - or at least the ability to jump through the hoops of academic education - they have not demonstrated the other skills that are integral to a successful solicitor.
