Interview Process


"The application process involved an online application form, online maths, psychometric and situational judgement tests, a telephone interview, and a face-to-face interview assessment centre with various written and group exercises."
Second year trainee, London
"I was started as a paralegal in the firm and then managed to secure my training contract."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"The application process consisted of an initial CV application, then verbal and numerical reasoning tests, commercial telephone interview, then face-to-face interviews. I then went to the assessment day which includes a number of practical and legal assessments with Partners of the firm, and this was followed by a final interview."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"The first step is the online application followed by a telephone interview, in which the main focus was commercial awareness. If you progress, the next step is another phone interview with several partners. Finally, I was invited to an assessment day at the office itself which was filled with both individual and group exercises, presentations and finally an interview with the Trainee Partner."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"I went through a vacation scheme, which had its own application form, psychometric tests, telephone interview, and a face-to-face interview. I then had to complete an assessment centre and further interview. The process was rigorous."
First year trainee, London
"I attended an open evening first. This helped me gage the firm's culture relatively well and meet individuals who would be involved in the process. I submitted my application form and then completed online verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests. Following this I had a telephone interview on commercial topics like the energy and retail markets, as well as further questions about myself. I then had a face-to-face interview for the vacation placement. I then had a final assessment day on the vacation placement which included an interview and various exercises."
