    If they abbreviate it to that, then it is fine

    I emailed them about this and unfortunately it means you can only apply twice in total :(

    Hello guys,

    I am trying to understand the role of an investment funds lawyer and the role of hedge funds.
    Do you know which section of the FT should I read which firms are specialised in investment funds?

    Thank you in advance

    I applied to Winter Vacation Scheme at Stephenson Harwood and just heard back today from grad rec inviting me to do a written case study exercise. Did anyone else get this invite? I thought the HR interview was the last step for VS.

    Thank you! I was a bit confused because their website just said it was going to be an interview. How was the case study?

    I was confused too! It was fine, nothing you wouldn't expect tbh. They give you 1.5 hours to complete it, which still wasn't long enough for me personally! Good luck :)

    Since you can only apply for HL twice in total, I am wondering how I should approach this year's application. I applied last year and I didn't pass the WG test. So, I was thinking of using the exact same application and applying again this year since technically I passed the written application stage. There have been no changes as such aside from my LPC grades. Now I'm second-guessing myself. Does anyone have any insight on this?

    I thought the test for HL was automatic? Sorry if I'm mistaken!

    Nothing yet. Two other people I know who attended have not heard back either.

    Is the Reed Smith questions automatic? or is it given to people who pass the SST?

    Anyone know if the AG application form character limit on answers is with or without spaces (2,000 characters - but trying to work out if it is with or without spaces).

    Hey! Yeah the WG is automatic so if you didn't meet the threshold, the recruitment team wouldn't have seen your application. If your score is high enough then they'll take take that score into consideration alongside your written application. It's probs a good idea to go through your previous application to see if you can make any changes even if there hasn't been a change work experience wise. E.g. your writing style may have improved since or you could refine your answers to better answer the question.
