About Us

Trainee Solicitor Surgery (TSS) is a niche careers service which provides specialist careers advice and support to anyone seeking to become a paralegal or trainee solicitor.

Our Purpose

TSS was started by a former FTSE 100 in-house lawyer, Matt Oliver, to help those struggling in the extremely tough law graduate job market.

Our primary aim is to provide real-world careers advice from experts in the recruitment of junior lawyers and to be the essential guide to anyone who is seeking a training contract, vacation scheme or paralegal role.

TSS is the student and graduate-focused sister site of Law Career Plus, a niche careers blog for qualified lawyers at all levels of experience.
