some of my pcll classmates were over 45 when they grad......all of them became pupil barristers.......frankly speaking, difficult to secure a TC at a solicitors' firm unless you are a connected party of the firms' partners

Rightly or wrongly, the so-called big firms prefer trainees in their twenties......

僱主貪你有經驗都唔洗請到4張幾野, 3張幾野都有10年8年工作經驗和network, 夠啦.
老實講, 僱員請人都要睇你有幾多可塑性, 4張幾野, 呢方面反而輸俾後生仔.

It depends on your previous work experience.  For example, if you worked in ICAC, MA or SFC (enforcement) in the past, some city firms with a strong regulatory practise may want to hire you.
