Application Advice:

Be yourself, don't be afraid to show that you have an independent voice or can stand up and make decisions for yourself. This firm prides itself on being a bit different so show why you are not a cookie-cutter lawyer. This doesn't mean you don't know about the commercial reality of the world that we live in, but be aware of how your non-legal experience can shape your thinking.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself - the firm looks for collegiate, collaborative thinkers rather than people who will trample over others to get to where they want to be. Be a person that your interviewer would be happy to share an office with.

Application Advice:

Be creative and stand out from the crowd. Mishcon offers much more variety and opportunity than the big corporate firms and your application needs to show that you are aware of what makes Mishcon stand out.

Application Advice:

While candidates need to have the necessary qualifications it is important to demonstrate a passion for something not necessarily within the law but that motivates and drives you. For example, if you have an interest in sport or something within the community.

Interview Advice:

In the interview, I was asked situational questions and asked how I would respond to various ethical situations.
It is a good idea to have a good grasp on commercial awareness and how it applies to a legal situation.
You should have a good knowledge of the firm and how the different departments interact with each other.

Application Advice:

Trainees tend to have big personalities. Boring, corporatey application forms will get you nowhere. Throw a joke or a zany comment in.

Don't be afraid to emphasise any commercial experience you have. It doesn't matter if it isn't legal. Any previous job you have had would have given you insight on how a business is run or how you think it could be more efficient etc. It's these type of perceptions they want you to be able to demonstrate.

Mishcon are looking for commercially minded, intelligent, interesting and interested candidates. Try and ensure that your application reflects this.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself and know what makes Mishcon "Mishcon".

Application Advice:

To demonstrate an interest in the future of the firm and not just where it is now.

Interview Advice:

Don't be afraid to show the quirks in your personality; Mishcon recruits unique candidates who are able to offer a variety of skills to the Firm i.e put rather unoriginally, be yourself. Remember that the way in which the Firm reacts to you as a person and what you are saying you can bring to the organisation, is also a way of ascertaining whether it the right place for you to as a prospective employee.

Show confidence, open-mindedness and an interest in the development of the business as a whole.

Application Advice:

Research the work of the firm really thoroughly because the practice areas are surprisingly broad. Do not say that it is a niche firm or that you are there just for the private client work-there is much more to it.

Interview Advice:

Know your CV really well and be prepared to defend it. Mishcon is a firm of litigators who will try and find something to challenge you on. Don't feel you have to agree with the interviewer, feel free to offer an alternative point of view.
