RPC look for the following skills when recruiting graduates:

Although proven academic ability is important (we require a 2.1 degree or above, not necessarily in law) we value energy, enthusiasm, business sense, commitment and the ability to relate well to others just as highly.

We look for organised individuals who set high standards for quality, take pride in everything they do and have a positive outlook. Candidates who are able to look at situations logically and make reasoned commercial judgements will really stand out. Aside from this we also look to for people who will bring their individuality to the office environment.

If you like a challenge and want to join us in challenging convention, we're offering training contracts on a full–time contract for two years.

UCL Alumni Profile



Name: Constantine Christofi

Current role: Trainee Solicitor

Studied at UCL: History

"Developing a sharp mind and an analytical way of thinking was essential for doing a History degree at UCL. Considering issues on a three-dimensional basis was fundamental to studying almost any module, and thinking about societies, economies and politics from myriad perspectives has undoubtedly aided my development as a trainee solicitor.

Having to be original in our ideas and ways of thinking was readily encouraged at UCL and this has certainly set me in good stead for working at RPC where the same is true. Going the extra mile for clients is always what you aim for, and having the confidence in your own ideas is the springboard for doing just that.

UCL's numerous societies also mirror the realities of working-life as an RPC trainee. Being entrepreneurial and self-starting in group initiatives is a key trait that a trainee needs to demonstrate, and at UCL you were given the licence to action almost any idea."
