Specialist Law Student & Graduate Career Coaching


- Matt Oliver. Founder & Senior Coach, The Legal Careers Group.

My student & graduate lawyer coaching programmes are specifically tailored for entry-level lawyers. They are built on 20+ years experience in the legal profession.

I have helped junior lawyers from the UK & overseas to secure a training contract. They regularly say they love that I understand their world.

I have been mentoring students & graduates on their law careers for over 15 years. Along the way, I set up the popular "Trainee Solicitor Surgery" law career blog.

As well as landing my own training contract many moons ago, I know exactly what is required of you to do the same in today's competitive job market.


Receiving rejections and don't know why?

A frustrated paralegal?

Want to avoid the common mistakes?


"Much to my surprise, last Monday I received an offer of a training contract with [xxxxxx]! Thanks so much for the interview coaching session, the role you played in my preparation was completely invaluable.”



"My experience with Matt has been very positive. He is very personable and professional and will tailor his advice to your personal situation. I have found his advice on how to prepare for competency interviews particularly useful and believe it to have been material in securing a training contract with a leading City firm."
