Simmons and Simmons Assessment Day

Hello hello. What can I expect from a graduate Assessment Day at Simmons and Simmons?

I found this on the internet for you:
“First, you’re given a document to read and then asked questions about it, followed by some business questions. There is then a general interview, focusing on your CV, and we also discussed an ethical dilemma. I felt pretty happy throughout the interview - in stark contrast to a previous interview in which I had received rather more tough treatment than I had expected, I was ready to be challenged on various parts of my CV but my Simmons interview was more like a discussion than a defence!” She was very pleased when the firm offered her a training contract a few days later."
