Be concise and avoid unnecessarily flowery language. By all means reference your achievements/Latham deals you have heard about/departments you are interested in but be prepared to talk about them at length in interview.
Apply for the vacation scheme.
Do you have any interview tips?
The interview questions I encountered were not phrased so as to catch me out. The interviewers picked up on things I had put in my application form, but the questions were open-ended to give me a chance to take the answer any way I wanted to. The interview often progressed as more of a conversation.
Don't be misled - the questions are tough, particularly in the commercial interview. But they are nothing you should not expect if you keep on top of the FT/The Economist/legal news. My interview was a surreal mix of tough questions with a light-hearted atmosphere. But it put me at ease and I was much better able to express myself than had I been on edge.
The interview was an accurate depiction of life at Latham - hard work, but in a laid-back environment.
