Fine-tune your interview technique, boost your self-belief and learn how to embrace your one chance to impress with mock video interviews led by a TCLA coach. We use the same software employed by many law firms to recreate the automated video interviews you’ll face during the application process.

Our Mock Interview Service is the best preparation we have for the real thing. Mock Interviews take place over one hour on Zoom, with a TCLA instructor who will seek to replicate the same experience you can expect in your vacation scheme or training contract interview. They will also be tailored to the firm you are applying to, as we test a combination of firm-specific, competency, scenario-based and commercial questions, and provide you with comprehensive feedback at the end. Mock Interviews can be purchased by Premium members starting from £31.50.
