Dear [recruiter’s name],

I have completed a law degree at the [University] with an upper [grade] class degree. I am applying for a training contract to commence in [year] advertised on

I am interested in corporate and commercial law because it will allow me to assume the role of a project manager and will afford me early responsibility. Given that commercial law is both transactional and ongoing, it is clear that I will have to build a rapport with the client and apply strong communication skills coupled with high technical ability when forming a clear picture of the client’s needs and objectives and then explaining what may well be a complex area of law when advising on the best solution. This may require me to liaise with a number of legal departments thus making each day a unique, enjoyable and fulfilling work experience.

I am attracted by the small intake of trainees which I feel will offer me bespoke training that is individually tailored to my interests, experience and aptitude. Small teams also suggest that I will have increased responsibility and operate as a lawyer from day one in an informal and collegial working environment. More importantly, I will receive the excitement and challenge of working on high value, complex transactions and disputes, in the size of office where everyone knows who you are.

Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,


Further things that could have been included in the Training Contract Cover Letter Template

Whilst being a university representative for the [bank name] I was responsible for conducting a major marketing campaign to graduates. I worked in a team of five. Some of the tasks were dispensing leaflets, putting up posters, giving presentations and talking to graduates. The aim of the campaign was to attract graduates to a career with [bank name]. The main problem throughout the campaign was graduates’ lack of interest. I therefore decided to change the entire nature of the campaign by introducing little role plays, putting up posters with key words and more importantly approaching graduates with a positive attitude and a good sense of humour. This strategy not only proved instrumental in gaining graduates' interest but was also a perfect opportunity to network with individuals. Moreover, the entire team found this activity to be exciting, enjoyable and different from what they imagined such work would originally entail. I noticed that my actions helped to bring the entire team much closer and therefore increased the level of synergy which thus made the entire campaign both personally and professionally rewarding.
