Application Advice:

Be honest. Tailor your application. Show good knowledge of the firm and demonstrate an interest in the work we do with examples of why you are interested.

Interview Advice:

It is very hard to get to the interview stage so make sure you are prepared. Often there is no correct answer to a question being asked but what you are being tested on is the way you respond to the answer - is your response reasoned and structured? How well do you cope under pressure?

Application Advice:

Ensure you know what type of firm you want to work for. It is difficult to find a lot of information on MoFo, so you will stand out if you know a bit about the London office.

Application Advice:

Be yourself in interview. MoFo pride sociability and humour as much as intelligence.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you're clear about what practice areas the LONDON office has - do not presume that the London office echoes the US office in everything!

Application Advice:

Do your homework! Be sure why you want to apply here and what sets the firm apart. Personality is also key - we look for people who fit in with our office culture, as well as strong academics and commercial aptitude.

Interview Advice:

Don't be over-prepared - we will always try to take you off-script if you come across rehearsed.

Application Advice:

Research MoFo, that goes down really well.

Be yourself, MoFo really cares about getting the personality right.

Ask questions, you want to be sure MoFo is for you as much as MoFo wants to make sure you are for them.

Interview Advice:

Be genuine and don't think the interviewer expects you to get everything right, they often just want to see how you respond to being put on the spot.

Application Advice:

Make your cover letter a good one - but don't make it too long!

Interview Advice:

Do as much research on Morrison & Foerster (UK) as possible as you will likely be asked at interview what makes MoFo stand out to you, so being able to name deals we've been involved in is impressive.

Application Advice:

Be sure about why you want to join a firm like Morrison & Foerster. Research the firm and understand why it differs from other city law firms.

Interview Advice:

As above. Revise basic legal concepts as you may be asked questions on them. Know your CV inside out, be prepared to discuss the decisions you have made career/education-wise up until the point of your interview.

Application Advice:

Research the firm and the areas that we practice in London, not just globally, make the application as specific to MoFo as possible and watch out for small mistakes in your CV and cover letter, this will likely result in the application being disregarded.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. If you have been taken to interview stage, you have impressed on paper, meaning that the interview is mostly to see if you are the right fit for MoFo personality wise.

Application Advice:

Be honest. Tell us who you are and don't send in a robotic/generic cover letter. Make it relevant.

Interview Advice:

Try to relax. Grades and experience will get you the interview but your personality is likely to win you the job. MoFo only hire people who would make a good fit within the firm and who will promote the firm's core values.

Application Advice:

Research some of the deals that MoFo have completed in the London office in the last year and refer to these in your application and interview. Referring to deals completed in the US is not always relevant to the London office.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared to justify why MoFo is your desired firm - and not just a generic answer, as this can be easily spotted.

Application Advice:

Research the firm and specific deals they have been involved in. Be enthusiastic and confident.

Interview Advice:

There are two rounds of interviews. There are a number of soft skills the firm may question you about, however it is more like a conversation. You should try to ask your questions about the firm while they are enquiring about you.

Application Advice:

Be yourself and show that you have done lots of extra-curricular activities.

Application Advice:

Research the firm as interest in the firm as opposed to the corporate culture/ practice areas is appreciated.

Interview Advice:

Prior to gaining your training contract there are two interviews to complete. The first interview is related to soft skills and general questions on your past experience. The second interview requires you to present on a topic that you have chosen (from a specific list of questions). The second interview is usually longer and can relate to anything from your CV to questions regarding the presentation or general legal knowledge.

Application Advice:

MoFo are very careful to recruit a candidate who will be a good fit in the office as well as an excellent lawyer. This is why all candidates must do the vacation scheme to get through to final interviews for the training contract. My advice would be to use this two weeks to prove not only your potential as a lawyer but also how well you would fit in with the team.

Interview Advice:

Creative thinking will get you extra marks. Business awareness is also a must.

Application Advice:

Try to research what the firm does and the clients that it represents. Showing an interest in the work that has been reported in the press shows a keen interest in the firm.

Interview Advice:

Try to be as natural as possible. Smile, it puts everyone at ease.

Application Advice:

Take the time to understand the firm and exactly what they value in a candidate.

Interview Advice:

Ensure you are well versed in recent legal developments.

Application Advice:

Work hard on your cover letter- they like to see that you genuinely want to be part of the firm and it's easy to spot a copy/paste job.

Make sure and emphasize that you want to work in a small trainee intake and that you can handle the pressure.

Interview Advice:

Work on your answers but don't just say what you think the interviewer wants to hear. The office in London is small, so the most important thing you can demonstrate is that you are friendly and approachable and can (and want!) to work in a collegiate atmosphere.
