Interview

1 hour long interview where I was assessed on giving a presentation + commercial awareness + personal questions. The presentation was on a topic we were given the night before. it had to last 10 minutes or so then we were asked questions on this. Topics were the tax policies UK may adopt and some PE questions. Commercial awareness questions were more conversational we discussed trump and twitter and personal questions were quite straightforward (like why skadden why commercial law etc.)
