This is the 4th (!!!) time I am applying to them and it's been varied. It used to be the second stage of the screening process but now they send it automatically - as someone else mentioned they just have to trigger it. I have also seen that some people got their VI invite but this is not set up yet so it might be that they want to focus on developing that before sending out more SJTs - hence why there is a delay this year in comparison to last year. In any case, not a PFOAh ok thank you! I applied last year and got the test almost immediately so I started being afraid...
I’m absolutely stumped on how to answer the ashurst summer vac scheme question “please summarise for us what a commercial lawyer does”.
Should I give a general overview? Or touch more upon one of their practice areas and what a lawyer may do within this area?
I think I may give a general overview and then focus upon the clients/law firms actually being a business in and of itself?
@Rob93, thank you for the suggestion! I will subscribe to this now!Just wanted to throw out for people looking to boost commercial awareness that I recently subscribed to Matt Levine's free 'Money Stuff' newsletter. It's from Bloomberg but free - extremely informative, incisive and funny (did I mention free?) A bit american-centric and I think at its best if you already have some familiarity with financial markets, but super accessible and very fun.
