    So in my interview there were four questions. Three competency based and one commercial one. The questions come up on your screen and then you have a couple of minutes to prepare your answer. It wasn't too bad! It varies with the questions though as one of my friends didn't get the commercial question...

    So I would suggest just having a couple of commercial issues you could talk about and always think about how these issues impact law firms
    Yes she only had competency bases questions. Good luck!

    I guess we can't really go into detail but he/she was definitely right. Do prepare some commercial issues for the video interview just in case and best of luck! Just relax and be confident as I was way too nervous when i did my interview!

    hey I was

    4 questinos, 1 minute to pprepare, and 90 seconds to talk about.

    I followed the STAR approach in all my answers- law firms really like it good luck!i prepared some answers before. I spent time planning and saying answers in those time limits. I really recommend ou do that so you get a feel of how much is possible in that time. Good luck!
