Interview: Tips & Advice


"Tailor your application, know the firm and what we do and keep up to date with commercial news that may impact the firm or our clients. Be yourself and have confidence in your abilities."
First year trainee, London
"My application process was via the vacation scheme and consisted of the following: an interview for the vacation scheme, the vacation scheme, an assessment day and a final interview. The best way to prepare is to research the firm and really understand the work we do."
Second year trainee, London
"The interview process consists of an application, a vacation scheme interview, a vacation scheme and a mini assessment day including a case study, psychometric test and a further interview. This process differs slightly depending on the office location and the preference of the partners. The best tip is to be yourself, show that you get on with everybody, learn as much as you can about the firm and don't be too serious."

"Understand that Trowers is a firm with a little bit of a niche. The property aspect of the firm is huge and so is the public sector aspect."
Second year trainee, London
"My tips would be to research the firm thoroughly. Make attempts to network with our team, whether that is trainees, solicitors, partners or grad recruitment. If you are on the vacation scheme, it goes without saying that you should research the team you are in and have a positive attitude. Also, do not forget to be yourself as the firm values individuality."
