Interview Question – Why law? Why Slaughter and May? Answer Question
Training Contract Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
Interviewed at Slaughter and May
Interview Details – Written test where you had to pretend to be a consultant and write a report for a company that was changing strategy. They give you a packet of relevant documents and you have to articulate your strategy using this information. The interview itself was tough, they will quiz you on your grades, and pay close attention to individual module marks. I was asked if the good marks I got were a fluke. Stay relaxed and don't be thrown by this kind of questioning. I probably tried to mount too vigorous a defence. They want you to be smooth and charming and bat away these kind of questions with a deft touch.
