  • This article is absolutely right . . . you have to flick through the economist or the ft once a week for at least a month before going to your interview! All you really need is one good, versatile story about something a company did, which it couldn't have done without the help of its lawyers. Weave that into your interview and say that it 'inspired you' and 'really showed how a lawyer could be a facilitator'. Hello tc!!

  • Having interviewed hundreds of candidates, in my role as GC, I agree that good grammar is important. However, good grammar can be learned. In theory so can commercial awareness..... But I rarely see it in candidates. The above article is a good pointer. If you want to be a business lawyer ask yourself,"What does the client want?". Commercial awareness will be at the top of that list.
