Publicated on Jul 1, 2015 - Give your opinion

It is not always easy to send a cover letter to a future employer when there is not actually a position open or being advertised. However it can be a great way to find out about any potential legal jobs that may open in the future.

It’s a good chance to show your motivation, and even if there are not any openings at that time it is a chance to make an impression and for them to keep your application on file for a later date. The main objective is to get an interview or meeting with someone.

Speculative cover letter example for a job in law

Dear Mr Walden,

I am writing to you as I am in my final year of my Masters degree in Law at Oxford University, I am enquiring about any paralegal openings that you may have at WaldenWalden&Scott, as of August.

I am highly passionate about a future in law, not only are all my family involved in the law profession but I have always had a strong belief in justice, and throughout my studies this has been confirmed through internships and hands-on experience in a working firm.

As you will see in my CV that I have enclosed I have done numerous internships and gained valuable work experience, working alongside some established professionals. I have undertaken many different roles and held different responsibilities.

It goes without saying that WaldenWalden&Scott are a well recognised and respected firm within the law world, and thus I feel that being able to work with you and members of your firm will consolidate skills that I have and also help me progress personally to be a key member of your firm during my career.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter, if any suitable positions are open or will open in the future I would really appreciate your consideration. If you have any further questions please contact me. I have also included my CV for you to look over.

Yours sincerely.
