Hi Everyone,

I was wondering whether anybody could possibly help...
I have just been informed I have to complete a video interview for the position of a legal apprentice at Kennedy's Law in London.
Has anyone got any idea of the questions asked from previous years or have completed it already?

I love planning ahead just because i tend to get super nervous and have mind blanks otherwise!

Many Thanks xxxx:-)

Hi, I’ve not completed mine yet but have been looking for answers too... if you’ve completed yours could you let me know which questions they ask and how I can prepare?Thanks!!
My deadline is the 23rd February (a week tomorrow). I am completing one for Eversheds Sutherland today and will carry over a few of the questions as both are law-based. As soon as i complete the interview for Kennedy's i will let you know :-) Such a shame there is hardly any tips on here from previous years x

Hi, I did mine today.

The questions were:

Why paralegal apprenticeship as opposed to university?
Why did you apply for kennedys for the paralegal apprenticeship?
What makes you stand out compared to other applicants?

They gave you 15 seconds to prepare and 1 minutes to respond, it went so quickly!

I am submitting mine on Thursday (just before the deadline). I know it is not much use to you, but I will tell you when they get back on mine. It normally takes firms about 10 working days to review the video interviews but then again it all depends on their HR department and how high the number of applicants is. Best wishes for you hun xx

I completed the video interview about 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything back yet either.
From previous experiences with other firms and their video interviews it can take up to a month for a reply - it all depends on their HR department, how many candidates they have interviewed and narrowing down who would be the most suitable for the assessment centre x

You know these are competitive processes? And by helping others by giving away the questions you may be costing yourselves a place...

Just got an email this morning saying I had performed really well at the assessment day and have therefore been invited to the final stage of the recruitment process which is a competency-style interview with the leaders of your chosen office (Chelsmford). I also need to prepare a 5 minute long answer as to why Kennedys is the firm for me. Hope everyone else's applications are going well!
