    Interview process

    I was asked why I wanted to work for the firm and why I wanted to do Law. This was after the initial telephone interview where they asked me about my degree, my previous internships and what I had learnt from there, was I allowed to work in the UK and if I was able to start work within a week if selected.

    After the brief talk I was given three scenarios from that days newspaper and was asked to defend clients by making an initial litigation within 90 minuits.

    I was also asked how flexible I was with my timings.

    I was finally asked whether I was flexible to work in the firms different offices at a short notice.

    I was also told about my job role and they verified if I knew all the essential skills.

    There was no strict format as there were 8 applicants on that day and we were called into the interviewers office one at a time.

    The interviewer was one of the firm's partners.

    They also took my permission to have a background check done on me.
    The interview along with the case studies lasted just over 2 hours.

    Interview tips

    Be Calm.

    Be honest and to the point or they'l catch you.

    Be humble and respectful.

    Show that you are willing to learn as the firm intends to teach you on the go rather then you relying on what you learnt at university.

    Punctuality is key as one candidate was not interviewed as he was 15 mins late for his scheduled time.
