The Business Problem
A&L Goodbody is Ireland’s premier law Firm, a popular choice for law students seeking traineeships, a prerequisite in Ireland for those who want to become solicitors. The solicitor application and assessment process is detailed and involves a number of key stakeholders in the firm. Previously, each applicant applied by submitting a handwritten Application Form downloaded from a PDF on the firm’s website. The information was then collated manually by an administration team and distributed to the stakeholders for review and interview selection. This process became increasingly cumbersome and time consuming as the number of applicants increased. A more efficient process was required.
