Still waiting to hear from Dentons post app... Unsure if i should take it as a rejection!
When did you apply?

I applied in November and they only sent me the Watson Glaser last week. I believe they are slowly getting back to people so hang in there and stay positive. I am sure you’ll be fine, best of luck :)

Hi there!

I have a TC AC coming up with Bird & Bird. If anyone has done an AC with Bird & Bird either for TC/VS, please may I know how long the AC was, how was it, was it difficult, what was the written exercise like etc.?

Thank you!

    Anyone heard back from BCLP for direct TC? I applied in December and did the test in early March. Slightly concerned as it seems they’ve had some AC’s and given offers already
    I believe those with offers/ ACs already are people who have done things with the firm. Direct TC applicants will be considered after those people are dealt with!

    Would race for change count as having “done things” with the firm?
    Agree with @Law2022 in regards to your Q above. Current ACs are for brand ambassadors and insight scheme participants, so the Race for Change event probably would not fall under this umbrella.

    I did my AC with them in August 2019 and that was one of the first ones so you have nothing to worry about at all!
