One's own situation cannot be unique, but is one's legal career 'tainted' if one's employment history is peripatetic and which contains 'gaps', either due to being between jobs (but not claiming a pathetically small sinecure stipend from the DWP)?Actively searching for another course of study, creative writing, improving one's language skills, for example might fill the gaps to explain what one has been doing during one's time away from working in practice, but a gap is a gap. It would be helpful to hear submissions from others who have had similar experiences, or any firms who might take a sympathetic POV.
