The legal market has long been notoriously known for being high-pressured and saturated with fresh graduates. There are even heavier odds against job landing with the aftershocks of the novel COVID-19 pandemic, notwithstanding the strong desire of law students to make good use of long school holidays to work as interns in law firms and chambers to verify your interest in the field and make valuable contacts. In the midst of coronavirus, recruitment cycle, methods and even headcounts change overnight.
You may be wondering how it is possible that after several months of going on interview after interview, completing hundreds of job applications and finally going against your introverted nature to attend countless networking events, you still see no summer job in your near future.
