    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Very pleasant process in a relaxing environment (considering it's a job interview at a top-tier firm!). First interview was one-on-one (comfy chairs, cookies), with mostly personality questions. Second interview was with two senior partners and more difficult. Third interview was another one-on-one, but this time I felt like the interviewer, while they were enticing me to join.

    Interview Questions

    • One question that trumped me was: if you were a prime minister for a day, what one law would you change and why?   6 Answers
