What are the Best and Worst things about your job?


That, even though I am a trainee, I am actually helping others to put together arguments by researching potential tactics. I feel like I am in the drama Suits - this is what I expected as a lawyer.


I will let you know once I have one, but please don't hold me to it.

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

When answering the law firm's questions, make sure that you apply current affairs into the answers. For example, you need to ask yourself: Is there something that the law firm will be worried about (for itself and its client); and, is it possible to apply that to any of the questions that have been asked.

This will help to illustrate your commercial awareness, as well as your knowledge of the firm and its clients.

Do you have any interview tips?

Communication is key. I spoke to current trainees of the firm, its future trainees and recently qualified trainees - LinkedIn is very useful. This helped me to prepare for the interview.

It goes without saying that you should know your application like the back of your hand.
