Specialist Law Student & Graduate Career Coaching

- Matt Oliver. Founder & Senior Career Coach, Trainee Solicitor Surgery

My student & graduate lawyer coaching programmes are built on 20+ years experience in the legal profession & detailed knowledge of the training contract recruitment process.

I have helped junior lawyers from the UK & overseas to secure a training contract. They regularly say the work we did together gave them the missing knowledge and skills to secure a training contract.

I have been mentoring students & graduates on their careers for over 15 years. Along the way, I set up this popular law career website.

As well as landing my own training contract many moons ago, I know exactly what the recruiters are looking for from you to succeed in today's competitive job market.


Receiving rejections and don't know why?

A frustrated applicant?

Uncertain what the recruiter wants to read & hear?

Struggle to decide which work examples to include?

Keen to progress your legal career?

Want to avoid the common mistakes?


"Matt’s advice on applications and coaching was invaluable in helping me secure a training contract. In particular his advice on perfecting my applications was truly game-changing and I am sure I would never have got to the assessment centre without it.”



""I attended multiple assessment centres with Magic and Silver Circle law firms but unfortunately never managed to land a training contract. Matt’s coaching and assessment helped me understand exactly what I needed to improve in my approach and what firms look for in a candidate, ultimately leading me to land a training contract with a Magic Circle law firm!"
