    It was fine. There's a group discussion in front of some partners, which is all very relaxed. Then a competency interview, although the partner used up about 60% of our time talking about football so it was also very relaxed. Then a study interview, which you have 45 minutes to prepare for (you'll only need 30 minutes max in reality). That interview was a bit more challenging as they have set answers that they want to get out of you. If they ask you about taking bribe, say no!

    Of course!

    I am a bit of a different case. So I already interviewed for the Winter Workshop and got on that, so to apply for a TC I just had to send a letter of intent. They then said they'd sort our interviews out first (not as a preference but because it was faster as they'd already seen us), so this is for the TC and it's a face-to-face interview but I certainly wouldn't worry if you've applied direct because they'll sort them very soon I'm sure
    Thank you! I applied for the Spring workshop so I wasn't sure if they had started looking at applications or not! But good luck for the TC interview! When is it?

    Irwin Mitchell video interview was terrible, had to stop most of them! Does anybody know if you can replay your own video ? Would be an interesting watch!
    Sorry to hear you had a bad experience, sure it isn't as bad as you think! If you don't mind me asking, do you get a practice question before every question and how long do you get to answer, does it automatically cut off? Thanks

    Thanks :P do they interview you for the workshop? Or are you just given a place based on your application? If I'm successful, do you mind if I message you to find out a bit more about the workshop itself?

    I'm sure you'll do great at your interview!

    If a position states "to apply for this vacancy, please submit your CV to......" - do you also need to submit a cover letter? I just wondered as friends of mine tell me different things and I always assumed that you always send a cover letter with your CV.

    Well that's it, I'm officially done. I received offers from Jones Day, Allen & Overy, Freshfields, Slaughter and May and Clifford Chance.

    I will be on the Slaughter and May Easter scheme and I have opted to accept A&O and Freshfields for summer.

    I will be at A&O on the 22 June - 10 July scheme and Freshfields on the 13 July - 31 July scheme.

    If anybody here is on any of these schemes, let me know, we could all arrange a meet-up on the schemes. Would be nice to put a face to the usernames!

    Good luck with the rest of your applications/interviews everybody.
