Application Advice:

Know the firm, know exactly why it is that you want to work here and make those reasons clear, but also state why those reasons that attract you to the firm are important to you. 'I want to work for Weil because its a top PE firm'. Okay great, but why do YOU care that it is a top PE firm?

Be frank about why you want to be a lawyer, help the reader see your journey to that decision.

Have interesting extra-curricular activities that will make you stand out. Say something personal about yourself, that will make graduate recruitment want to meet you.

Interview Advice:

You will always be asked about PE, so make sure that you have a very strong understanding of the mechanics of PE and also why you are interested in it. Understand what exactly it is about Weil that makes you want to come here, what sets it apart from all its other competitors. Always have well thought out questions to ask the interviewer in the end, preferably something about themselves (everyone loves to talk about themselves). Make sure that you read your application form again and you have answers for anything they might ask you based on that, especially if there is something exceptionally good or bad on your form.

Application Advice:

Be pro-active, self-confident and show yourself eager to learn. A commitment to a career in law and an understanding of what it entails is very useful. Really research the firm, know its position in the market and what its strengths/weaknesses are. Explain why the firms strengths match your own strengths/interests.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself and be prepared to talk about your life outside law - interviewers want to see whether they'd get on with you on a personal level as much as they want to see someone who is talented and committed to law. Have convincing answers to the key questions (e.g. why law? why this firm?) and practice them before the interview.

Interview Advice:

Commercial awareness is key- particularly in relation to private equity and how economic trends affect the legal profession.

Trainee Associate, at Weil, Gotshal & Manges

Application Advice:

Don't have any prejudices about what it is to work at a US law firm. Weil's London office is completely independent and staffed 99% by English qualified lawyers. We do English law work with an international scope - not just US work for our New York office. The environment here is welcoming, understanding and open - trainees are given the freedom to develop but are always supported.

Interview Advice:

First of all, be yourself. Don't second guess what you think the interviewer wants to hear. There is space to have your own personality at Weil, so don't be afraid to let that come across. Expect to be asked about your motivations for wanting to practice law and expect competence based questions - you should have a decent working knowledge of how law fits within the machine. Private equity is a key focus of the London office so you should have an understanding of the cycle from first fundraisings by managers, through investments and then exits.

Application Advice:

Find out as much as you can about the firm and whether it would suit you. For example, there is a small trainee intake, it is an American firm and it has quite niche practice areas - you should make sure that these are for you.

Interview Advice:

Do your research and find out as much as you can about the firm and its practice areas. Also make sure you know about the current economic situation and its impact on the commercial world.

Application Advice:

Be sure that the type of work that Weil (in London) focuses on really does interest you. The work is at the top of the field, but it is very specific and will not be for everyone.

Be yourself - and perhaps a little bit bold.

Tailor your application - which means that anyone applying should really research Weil, its London office and think about why we appeal to them, specifically.

Interview Advice:

Think rationally about every question asked, even if it means pausing for a couple of moments to compose yourself, and deliver practical, common-sense answers.
Anybody trying to blag their way though really will get found out.

Prior to interview, really consider why Weil (specifically) is a particularly good fit for you (specifically).

Be yourself - don't shy away from showing a bit of personality - or wit if appropriate.
