    Interview process

    The assessment centre was a full day. There was a timed client letter while you received "emails" to your inbox, of which outgoing emails were monitored by the assessors. There was a group exercise with a large volume of letters to read to ascertain how strong a clients case was. After that, we had lunch. Then we had an individual presentation about the solution to a senior lawyer and another one on on interview and a proofreading exercise.

    Most difficult question

    The questions were related to the strength of the case so try and think in the bigger picture about what you can say to a client.

    Interview tips

    Practice e tray exercises, know the format of a client letter. I was a second year law student at the time with no experience of practical law but I was interviewed with people who had completed their LPCs and so were far more used to this. When you are completing the proofreading exercise, don't panic! Its a short timeframe but you won't stop errors if you're frantically scanning. Be prepared to try and speak well on the client case so speak concisely and definitively. Be prepared to spot not just the strengths of the case but the weaknesses and think about how you can turn those weakneseses around
