Interview Process


"The process consists of an online application form, a telephone interview and an assessment centre. It is quite a long process and can be quite daunting. I think this applies, however, to whichever firm you are interviewing at."
First year trainee, London
"There was an online application and an assessment day consisting of a partner interview, group exercise and a case study with two partners."
First year trainee, London
"I submitted an application and did an online assessment for a vacation scheme in my second year of university as a non-law student. The interview for the vacation scheme was challenging and focused on commercial awareness given my non-law background. The vacation scheme was full of social events and the interview for a training contract was much more casual and relaxed than the interview for the vacation scheme and was more of an informal chat about the work I'd been involved with on the vacation scheme."
First year trainee, London
"I did not undertake a vacation scheme at this firm, but obtained a training contract offer after an assessment day. The assessment day consisted of a group exercise, an interview with an associate about myself, and an interview with a partner, which involved a case study."
First year trainee, London
"The interview process has changed since I underwent it, but there is currently a telephone interview, then an assessment day involving a group exercise, a case study interview and a further interview."
Second year trainee, London
"I did a vacation scheme and was offered the TC after that. None of the interviews were overly strenuous from what I remember. There was a legal/commercial awareness type interview, and a more personal interview about my own interests."
