Have you been struggling with law firm interviews? Do you fall down on group exercises during assessment centres? Are you wondering how to approach case studies and written exercises?

TCLA’s 2019/20 interview course was designed to help you turn an interview into a training contract offer.

You don’t need exceptional qualifications, experiences or extracurricular activities to stand out in the application process. In fact, standing out is something you can learn.

We brought together the knowledge and experiences of 12 future trainee solicitors to break down the interview process. These future trainees bring a variety of perspectives based on what they’ve learned interviewing at multiple law firms across the City.

In this course, you will receive advice on preparing for competency and commercial questions, strengthening your application, building a rapport with your interviewers and much more.

We also break down TCLA’s best advice for the variety of assessments during assessment centres based on our experiences conducting mock interviews with hundreds of candidates.

And that’s not all. This course will be updated on an ongoing basis to reflect new sections, including developing commercial awareness and networking, as well as new commercial topics that are being asked at interview.
