I've been wondering exactly the same thing and my assumption is that the deadline is Sunday 2 Jan.
If this is for CMS it means 11:59pm on 3 Jan. Mine is the same and I checked with graduate recruitment today. I was sent the invite on 29 December and you have five daysThis might be a silly question - if the deadline for a VI is the 3rd Jan (GMT+00:00), does this mean that I won’t have the entire 3rd Jan to complete it and rather will have to complete it by the end of 2nd Jan. Hope that made sense
Can be lots of non-legal roles too. CVmail is a platform used by many types of orgaisations.What deadlines are today on cvmail?
Thanks so much for your reply - I apologise in advance for how dense this sounds on my part, but when you say "not just because you ran out of word count", do you mean that running out of word count is a valid reason (albeit not the only reason) for putting information in the "additional info" question, or, alternatively, that it isn't a valid reason (and that we should only include info that other questions didn't give candidates a chance to answer elsewhere on the form)?It is not an issue if it is blank and it will be fairly common for it to be so.
It really is any opportunity to provide any further information that doesn't naturally fit into other questions (and not just because you ran out of word count). That could include grade clarifications, explanations for gaps in education or employment, if you are limited to the number of work experience entries you can provide, providing a summary of your other experiences (even if it is just job titles and dates of employment), Any particular circumstances you think make you stand out (e.g. specific skills like languages/coding abilities etc if you haven't been able to include them elsewhere), clarity on your work status (e.g. if you need a visa etc).
Yes this is for the CMS VI - thanks for letting me know, just to confirm did they explicitly say that you have until 11:59pm on 3 Jan or just that you have five days to complete it.If this is for CMS it means 11:59pm on 3 Jan.

If it’s another firm probably best to check with them!
Yes, here is the wording of their email: Thanks for getting in touch, I can confirm that the deadline is 5 days from receipt of the link, so as you were sent the link on 29/12/2021, the deadline is 03/01/2022 at 23:59.Yes this is for the CMS VI - thanks for letting me know, just to confirm did they explicitly say that you have until 11:59pm on 3 Jan or just that you have five days to complete it.
If you're talking about the department at the firm, then yes it is capitalised. But if you're talking about your interest, e.g. "my interest in international arbitration", then capitalisation isn't necessary.Are practice areas capitalised? for example, is it International Arbitration or international arbitration? Thank you
