    i'm sitting here waiting to begin my video interview but a) i can't feel ready because seeing myself seems too distracting i feel like i'd freeze when asked the questions and b) my connection keeps dropping every 5 seconds !!
    I know what you mean - doing IM interview was very strange as I felt like I was talking to myself - but good luck I'm sure once you start the interview you'll relax more

    Is this an actual application question or is it just a little section under what office you are applying to?

    Connections would be specific to the area of their office. For example if you chose London, did you go to school/uni there? Do you live there? Do you intend to relocate? Any family connections?

    as to length of answer, it depends whether it is an application question or a little section under office choice. Either way I don't think it's necessary to write a lot- I normally write a simple sentence.
    They give checkboxes for family, university, postgraduate etc. Then underneath the checkboxes it says "please give details". It's not with the additional application questions that test you on competency, so I'm guessing it's just intended to be a small section. I might just write a few sentences too, thanks!

    I'm completing that application too - what I'm trying to do is focus on the firm and what they can actually do to ensure they continue their reputation in CS. Try to avoid the generic answers that could be copy and pasted to all firms. They prob want to know you've done your research on them and tie your examples back to your research.
    What does "CS" stand for?

    Thanks for your answer btw! And good luck with your application too.

    It's about knowledge of the firm. Nothing about you is needed.

    'Tell us about interests and hobbies you have outside of work or education'..

    (I have graduated and I'm working now) I may be overthinking this but is it ok to mention sports etc I was involved in at uni or is the question only asking about my current interests and hobbies?

    Both A&O and Freshfields offer you the chance to apply for the extra week, not sure about anywhere else, there may be more.

    i did my HD one a couple of weeks ago, they asked questions like 'why law' / 'what can you bring to HD' and 'what is commercial awareness to you'. was tough as they give you 30 seconds to read the question and then 1 minute to answer. seeing as I haven't heard back yet I'm pretty sure i fluffed it but oh well! did take them nearly 3 months to reply to me in the first place (applied in November) good luck!
