    Monthly commercial courses

    Commercial Course 1: Private Equity: This course was released in March 2019. It is for those applying to firms like Weil, Kirkland, Ropes & Gray, Latham & Watkins -- firms with a strong private equity practice; it's also suitable for those looking to develop their understanding of what private equity firms do.

    Commercial Course 2: The Interviewees' guide to Mergers and Acquisitions: This course was released in April 2019. It is a much bigger course designed to break down everything you need to know about mergers and acquisitions for your interviews. In addition to the video lectures and quizzes, the course includes:
    • Points to note/guidance for how to write a good answer to our second TCLA mock case study.
    • Our new M&A case study with points to note.
    • A new, more interview-focused case study on the Sainsbury's-Asda merger with points to note.
    • A full list of potential M&A interview questions with sample interview answers for each.
    Here's our little promo for this course:


    Coming soon

    Commercial Course 3: How to discuss Brexit in a law firm interview

    I've kept this under wraps for now, but more details will be revealed soon. For this course, I've partnered with a former recruiter and stockbroker to break down the impact of Brexit on businesses and law firms. The target release is early June 2019.

    The recording is completed and we now have a fixed date for release of our Brexit course. It will be released this Sunday, 5 July 2019.

    (Apologies for the slight lag there, we were initially hoping to release it today.)
