What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

Gain as much experience as possible - legal or otherwise. Highlight how the skills you have gained relate to a career in law. Always answer honestly and try to engage with any application questions with relevant examples. Do not just copy and paste generic answers from application to application - firms can easily see this.

Do you have any interview tips?

Always be yourself and make sure you engage with assessment day tasks and chat with as many of the staff members present (from trainees to partners). Be inquisitive, friendly and tailor your questions/answers to the firm's values and the tasks you have to complete.
