It’s not too bad. Have you got an interview/assessment day coming up? I wouldn’t worry too much about it. My [[training contract]] interview process was:
- online application
- first round interview
- second round interview
The first round interview was with two corporate partners (one from reconstruction and insolvency and the other from corporate finance).
There were two parts to the interview. ‘’‘Part one’’’ was an unseen [[case study]]. Prior to going in you are given 20 minutes to read through a fairly hefty case. You must prepare a 10 minute [[presentation]] (a proposal based on this case study) to the partners who act (role play) as clients. They ask you questions. ‘’‘Part two’’’ is a normal interview. In the case study, they just want to know if you can spot the issues, analyse and conclude. Questions asked post-case study (as I remember):
- looking at your A levels you had a creative start, why pursue law now?
- Tell us about working in Australia.
- Have you any questions for us?
Other than the case study, the interview was most concerned with getting to know your personality and character. The interviewers were friendly and relaxed; encouraging.
The unseen case study is really not too bad. the interview was good too - difficult, but the firm’s interviewers are very friendly. After the interview HR spent time talking to me and I visited the department I would/may be working in.
