Interview Questions


"I was asked why I wanted to have a career in law despite not having studied it at university and also whether I was certain that I wanted to be a solicitor since I had previous work experience at the Bar. I was asked what appealed to me about Gibson Dunn specifically. I was also given a news article that prompted a discussion in which I was expected to balance defending my views with being open to other suggestions."
