This address should be formatted to align on the right hand side of the page

02

Be clearer about this - are there particular fields within law that interest you in particular? The employer will want to see this.

03

Tell us more here - how does it link? Why does that interest you, and how does it directly link to your experiences. Your next section is quite vague because you haven’t been specific enough here.

04

Such as whom? Letting us know this will inform us the types of people you are comfortable working with. Your client and business interactions will be particularly important in this sector.

05

How does this relate to the placement scheme? You have made a statement but not really quantified it - providing an example here will help significantly.

06

It would be worth clarifying this slightly. You understand the worth of adding this point but haven’t really expressed that clearly.

07

Again, you have made a valid point but not provided any real evidence for it. We are interested in proof, not speculative phrasiology.

08

Provide us with an example here - show your research. You may have found something other applicants have not.

09

This is a very brief paragraph, yet it is something you are quite passionate about. This gives the impression that you have little to talk about. If you consider their pro bono work significant, make that clear. Do your research on the company’s efforts and comment upon them, almost like a case-study in miniature.

10

How? Provide links between your experiences and those of the company directly.

11

Combined with the paragraph above, you now have a very abrupt ending. It appears as though you are not sure what to say at the end. Perhaps it would be worth commenting further on your skills and why you consider yourself suited to the placement? End on a strong note.
