Application Advice:

Try to understand what the firm really means by being commercially aware.

Read the FT.

Have an answer for 'why law' - people generally don't have something concrete.

Linklaters' interviews are very commercial. They will give you a case study and grill you on the commercial drivers of the deal and how a lawyer would tailor their advice accordingly.

Application Advice:

Understand the role of a commercial lawyer and ensure your application reflects an interest in that type of work. Use a variety of resources to collate information that will make your application feel highly tailored to the firm. The advice sounds general, but it's general for a reason.

Interview Advice:

How lawyers would be involved in the process of a deal, in terms of the different departments that would be required, and then what specific things those departments might have to do. It was important to have some awareness on the decisions that need to be made and the influences on what advice we would give.

Interview Advice:

Don't panic. Seriously, your interviewer is human and doesn't want to see you struggle. Don't hesitate to ask for a question to be repeated.

Be determined, make sure your CV shows a 'narrative' of how you came to want to work here, i.e. first legal work experience and what type of law, first commercial legal work experience and what type of firm i.e. American; and, if your CV doesn't have those things, go and get the experience by emailing/meeting whoever you can. Use your university graduate recruitment team

Attention to detail and don't just use the same application for all firms, it is really obvious when you do.

Try and take a longer term approach to your "special interest topic", if it is something you just read in the FT the morning of your interview you are unlikely to have any interesting and fully formed views on the matter.

Application Advice:

Trainee Solicitor, Banking at Linklaters LLP
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Give due consideration as to why a magic circle firm is a suitable choice for you. What are your interests? Where do you see your career going? If in law for the long term, which area of law do you want to work in? What are your expectations in terms of work/life balance?

Interview Advice:

Research and preparation are key to success in an interview. Ensure you're across: (a) a few key news stories reported by the FT (or a similar news provider); (b) news about the firm to which you're applying; (c) some recent important deals/matters the firm has worked on; (d) an idea of where you might like to go, and why; and (e) some well-considered (and genuine) questions about the firm.

Application Advice:

Spend more time than you think you need and really try to perfect each section; revise multiple times; get another perspective.

Interview Advice:

Project confidence and positive attitude; be well informed of the sector, the firm and current developments, ask relevant questions.

Trainee Solicitor, Corporate / Investment Funds at Linklaters LLP
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The best research is done first hand, by speaking to people who work at the firm you are applying to - only then can you truly decide whether the place/role is for you. The work can be challenging and neither you, nor the firm, will gain from having a disenchanted workforce.

Interview Advice:

Commercial awareness means being able to (and understand how to) service your clients. It does not mean reading the FT cover to cover. The best approach is to follow a story for a sustained period of time - from articles you will discover more about the sector/industry, what the companies involved are looking for, etc.

Don't be afraid to say "I don't know the answer". Ideally, follow this up with a hypothesis/analysis that shows how you would approach answering the question.

Application Advice:

Ensure you have completed a significant amount of commercial awareness reading before entering into the application process.

Interview Advice:

As above. Also be yourself! Everybody is different and the recruiting partners appreciate this.

Trainee Solicitor, at Linklaters LLP
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Think about how law fits within the wider sphere of commerce. If a candidate can come to understand what a corporate lawyer's role is with potential clients, this comes across well in interviews and demonstrates commercial awareness.

I would just reading (non-legal) news stories and trying to work out how a firm like Linklaters may have been involved and what areas they may have advised on.

Interview Advice:

The academic background of a candidate is often irrelevant. A role as junior lawyer requires many skills which you may have developed through previous work experience/extra-curricular activities such as teamwork, leadership, communication skills etc. Make you think about these carefully before interview and prepare thoughtful examples.

Trainee Solicitor, at Linklaters LLP
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Have your application reviewed and checked by someone else for spelling mistakes.

Application Advice:

Really show in your application what makes the firm different to the other magic circle firm and why you have applied to Linklaters. For example it is not enough to simple say that I wanted to work at an international firm you should be specific about why this particular international firm.

Interview Advice:

Prepare for the interview and think about the types of questions you will likely be asked. Brush up on your application in particular the reason why you are applying to Linklaters and what sort of firm you are looking for.

Trainee, at Linklaters LLP

Application Advice:

Application - you may have heard this already, your application has to be spotless and really tailored to the firm, also make sure your application answers the questions asked fully;

Experience - having some recent working experience in another law firm (or in the more wider legal environment) or in the commercial world does help;

Interview Advice:

Prepare for a fun, yet challenging day at the firm, have a few current affairs subjects ready to talk about (and if you mentioned an area of interest in your application please make sure you can answer a few questions on the subject).

Interview Advice:

Commercial awareness

Legal Advisor, Corporate / Derivatives at Linklaters LLP
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Show a genuine commitment to this lifestyle and this type of work. Set yourself apart by presenting anything that makes you different and can be shown to be relevant to the Firm. Fit any skills you have into the working of the Firm to show that you have read marketing material and are aware of the Firm's objectives and ethos. Probably not worth applying unless you are on track for a 2:1 or 1st. The University you study at is less relevant than you might think, though a large proportion of the cohort is still Oxbridge. Due to the international nature of the firm, languages are particularly prized and grants are given to further your fluency.

Commercial awareness is understanding how the business world all works practically together in unison (e.g. how falling oil prices have a knock on effect etc.) and how it will impact clients.

Interview Advice:

Confidence but never arrogance, no need present a false version of yourself as the grad recruitment team will see through it instantly. Study body language techniques to make your presence memorable. Dress code is business smart, there is no need for flamboyances.

Interview Advice:

I was asked to consider what departments I thought were involved in a big transaction (fact pattern given in the case study). In answering a question like this a candidate should think beyond the 'obvious'; litigation and corporate and consider the important role specialist groups play such as, IP, Pension and Tax.

Application Advice:

It sounds clichéd but do try to come across as well-rounded. Academic excellence is something to be proud of, for sure, but that alone won't get your foot in the door. Similarly, it is not a necessity to securing a training contract either - show that you have supplemented it with other activities and interests that don't translate as easily into letter grades.

Interview Advice:

Try to strike a balance between an interest/knowledge of the law, and a more commercial focus. You need to demonstrate an affinity for both, although the latter more so. But knowing the front page of the FT will only get you so far - first and foremost the job involves the law, usually in the form of contracts.

Application Advice:

Take the time to complete the application and don't under-sell yourself. Linklaters is one of the few firms I've heard of that actually reviews each and every application form - they are after all-rounders, not just those with high marks! So, there's no mark-culling before they review. It is therefore worth taking the time to complete the application.

Interview Advice:

Be commercially aware. They aren't just after smart people, they want people that know what is going on in the world - particularly in the corporate sphere (it impacts our clients). Read newspapers, read the Economist etc. because you'll likely get a question which not only tests your legal knowledge but also your commercial awareness.

Interview Advice:

Demonstrate that you have a real desire to work as a lawyer for a corporate law firm, and show that you have made efforts to understand the type of work that the firm does and how it differentiates itself from its competitors. It is not necessarily a good idea to try to impress with your own technical legal knowledge - the partners interviewing you will know far more than you do!

Application Advice:

You really know need demonstrate your genuine interest and commitment to working at Linklaters. In particular, you need to show that you know about the commercial environment the firm and its clients operate in so make sure you keep up to date with current affairs. If you read nothing else, read the Lex column on the FT website each day - will give you a starting point to develop your thoughts / interpretations of recent events.

Interview Advice:

When I applied (2010) there was a verbal reasoning test followed by a general interview with a Managing Associate and Partner and then you had 30 minutes to read a case study and present your analysis on it to a partner. I would recommend attending some open days (either at the firm or at other firms) because they often include similar activities so you will know the kind of things you should discuss.

Application Advice:

When you're writing an application, list all the things about yourself that you'd like the reader/interviewer to focus on (e.g. academics, work experience, other jobs, sport, music, etc.).

Then for each of these items, try to complete the sentence: "This would make me a good lawyer at Linklaters because...". (For example, I was captain of my university rugby team, and this would make me a good lawyer at Linklaters because (i) through this experience I have developed my teamwork, leadership and organisational skills; (ii) this shows my dedication to achieving excellence; (iii) this shows my enthusiasm, motivation and resilience.)

Once you have understood what each of your personal attributes is giving you and how they relate to being a lawyer, then you can start to write a strong, focussed application.

Interview Advice:

Develop three pillars of evidence: e.g. academics, legal work experience and sport/extra-curricular. Make sure you strike an even balance between your three pillars as you move through the interview when you are asked about yourself and what you've done that would make you a great lawyer. This will help you to avoid repeating yourself, selling yourself short, or appearing too one-sided.
