Interview Questions

2018

"Why law and why Jones Day were two of the key questions. A trickier question was what I thought Jones Day was good at and where I thought it could improve."
First year trainee, London
"Questions were very wide ranging, from what my favourite film was to what I thought about mortgaging intellectual property rights. Most of them were on why I thought law and the firm were right for me, though."
First year trainee, London
"They were generally conversational questions."

"Interviews are fairly informal and based on your responses to questions in the application. There was little discussion of the law and more on my personal experiences etc."
