Questions about my prior work experience. Questions which required me to demonstrate a commercial mindset and providing practical legal advice as opposed to just technical advice. Questions about what areas of law I liked and why. Questions about the biggest challenges facing the legal profession.
The usual kinds of questions, skills, experience, etc.
Fairly standard behavioural based questions in the first interview. The second round interview was a group based activity in which we were given a scenario and asked to talk through our thinking and approach to dealing with the problems raised therein. It was an excellent activity in that it was relevant and also required you to work well in teams.
Favourite subjects at uni, relevant work experience.
Mixture of experience and behavioural questions
I was asked about my legal experience, general working experience and asked to describe certain situations e.g. managing competing priorities, dealing with challenging people etc
Behavioural and experience questions. It was pretty standard, no surprises.
Questions about experience, interests, goals and why I want to work at the firm.
Various questions seeking to determine my ability to work in a team, and to gauge my understanding of and enthusiasm for various areas of law.
I was asked about time I had spent overseas, why I had gone there, why I came back, what I was interested in and what my most regular nightclub was.
I was asked to discuss my previous work experience, how I had handled various challenges and why I wanted to work for the company.
I cannot recall what I was specifically asked during my interviews, but I do remember walking out of the interviews and being concerned I had talked too much or had become too relaxed and chatty during the interview.
