    Hey All,

    I've locked the last thread since it has now reached over 100 pages.

    Please use this thread to share application/interview outcomes, as well as support and tips for upcoming law firm interviews and assessment centres.

    Good luck this year guys!

    Best,

    Jaysen

    Does anyone know how long it takes for Sidley to get back to you post-AC?

    Hi Aaron, it took me slightly less than a week. Did the interview on a Friday and got the call on the following Thursday

    There is no tests, just a straight AC so it just depends on your online application. When did you apply? I still haven’t received a response yet back from my AC. I gave them a call today, they said they should let me know by the end of this week. As they do have a backlog of applications which I’m aware of.

    Just wanted to share I’ve been offered my second vacation scheme offer this cycle with Baker McKenzie for their summer scheme and also have an incoming interview with Slaughter & May for a direct TC.

    Honestly, the content, discussions, and support on the corporate law academy forum have been so encouraging. I just wanted to ask if anyone has any advice or tips in making either of these successful as I am really looking forward to working hard and hopefully turning one of these opportunities into a TC! Thank you :)

    Has anyone done an AC with Clydes, esp their group assessment? Checked all the posts on their AC (which are really helpful!) and would love to know more about it! Thank you :)
