Case study and commercial interviews are some of the most challenging assessments at commercial law firms.
We know many of you struggle in these interviews because you lack experience analysing business articles or debating commercial issues in an interview setting.
You’re not used to being challenged by a partner. You’ve never had to explain how a commercial story impacts a law firm. You don’t know what to expect or how to best prepare.
Introducing TCLA’s Virtual Training Programme.
Each week, TCLA will be providing interactive training sessions for premium members. These sessions are designed to help you develop your commercial awareness and teach you how to excel during interviews at top commercial law firms.
Learn To Stand Out
These sessions are designed to equip you with the training you need to excel during commercial interviews and case studies.
Our intimate group sizes mean you’ll receive training and feedback that is tailored to your needs.
Our topics, questions and discussions aim to develop your commercial awareness in time for your interviews.
Each weekly session lasts for one hour and takes place within small, intimate groups via Zoom (an easy-to-use video conferencing software).
We are currently running one session per week on a Wednesday evening. We’ll rotate topics every month, and candidates with an existing premium subscription can sign up to one session each month. Dates are allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
Once registered and approved below, you will be sent a topical commercial news article to read in advance of their session.
During the session, the TCLA team will:
- Provide a thorough analysis of the article, teaching you about why it’s a relevant topic for interviews.
- Explain technical concepts, discuss the broader commercial implications of the article, and consider the impact on law firms.
- Discuss the questions you might expect in an interview and share advice for formulating answers to technical interview questions.
- Share advice for how to prepare and what to expect in commercial and case study interviews.
The sessions will be interactive. You will have the opportunity to practice answering interview questions in a close-knit, supportive environment. After the session, you will receive a feedback form, as well as a detailed summary of the topic, with mock interview questions to practice.
