How do our mock interviews work?

Our mock interviews take place via Skype and last for one hour.

Who are the mock interviewers?

Arun Sohan-Pall completed five vacation schemes at leading international firms and converted all of them into training contract offers.

Kindly note that Arun will be working as TCLA’s mock interviewer until the end of May 2021, when a new team member will be taking over.

What is the no-show policy?

Kindly note that cancellations within 24 hours of your appointment will be subject to the full charge. You cannot reschedule an appointment within 24 hours, you will need to book another appointment instead.

The interview prep provided was very useful and tailored to my situation. The process of helping me improve on my answers and picking holes in my examples definitely helped me secure a TC. Hands down the best interview prep I have received and will definitely be referring people to do the same!


The mocks were extremely helpful both in terms of content feedback and boosting confidence. Arun gave broad general and specific personalised advice. Some questions were challenging and this prepared me well for the real interviews. There was a lot of flexibility to cover what I wanted to focus on. I would recommend it to anyone with an upcoming interview/assessment centre or anyone who may have one in future and just wants to practice interview and commercial awareness questions.


Arun was really personable and made me feel at ease. I felt that the session was really structured and well thought out and I received invaluable feedback and confidence which really prepared me for my interview. I have since gained an interview for the second round stage for a training contract and I would definitely use the service again and would also recommend this to anyone who is applying! Thanks again 🙂


Arun took time to understand my up to date experiences and then tailored the interview to my needs and worries. I was glad that it wasn’t about answering preset questions but rather about getting deep into issues I could encounter in the real interview; it helped me to gain the confidence I needed! Thank you.


Arun is great! He picks relevant case studies and helps you prepare holistically. You’ll definitely be more confident going into your interviews after preparing with Arun.

Starting the journey towards securing a training contract is scary because I did not know what to expect. I want to take time out to thank both of you for your extreme efforts to make the process a lot easier. It provided me with an insight into what I could expect at an assessment centre. Also, it made me realise how I can utilise my time further during the lockdown to increase my commercial awareness. The sessions enable me to apply my prior knowledge to scenarios and develop my team working skills virtually. It is incredibly useful receiving a guide after the session summarising the key points. It meant I could concentrate during the sessions and have a guide to look over and further my understanding to help me prepare for the real thing. I love hearing both of your experiences, especially Alice’s, regarding interviews and appreciate how you both provide tips throughout the sessions. Once again, Thank you!

The mock was a great interview refresher and it was monumental in my preparation to secure a late-summer vacation scheme (rescheduled due to Covid-19). Subsequently, I received a training contract offer at a top 20 firm commencing in 2021, as well as a full sponsorship for the LPC/LLM course. Thank you Arun and The Corporate Law Academy Team. Keep up the good work!


Hi Jaysen,

I hope you are well.

I thought I would drop you a line to explain why I have decided to cancel my TCLA premium subscription, just in case you thought it was due to dissatisfaction with the service I have received. That is certainly not the case. Rather, I have recently received a training contract offer from Travers Smith and will be accepting the offer.

When I started using TCLA premium earlier this year, I lacked a lot of confidence in my ability to write a convincing application, my ability to assimilate complex commercial topics and my all-round ability to navigate through the TC process in order to actually obtain an offer. However, I began to use TCLA premium for hours upon end each day throughout lockdown 1.0, from the law firm insights you provide in order to better tailor my apps to the various courses you offer aimed at demystifying the elusive notion of ‘commercial awareness’ just to build up an arsenal of commercial aptitude that would leave me in good stead for AC’s and interviews, and my confidence began to dramatically swing in the other direction. I began to get past the application stage in the vast majority of my apps and I began to believe in my ability to perform exceptionally at the AC/interview stage. TCLA has undoubtedly been instrumental in allowing me to unlock my true potential and iron out deficiencies in my all-round approach to the TC process that had been holding me back for years.

I could not be happier with the service I have received and it is the best money I have ever spent. Thank you for your relentless efforts to continuously provide such a first-class service that really does have the capability to change lives.

All the best


The mock was super useful- I found it to be challenging but those challenging elements were exactly what helped me perform well during my actual interview. I would recommend it to anyone with an assessment centre or interview coming up!

The zoom session has thankfully restored my confidence in my ability to perform in case study exercises! I usually dread case studies exercises during assessment centres, but the session has showed me that you will go far from articulating your thought processes clearly. Thank you very much! Would highly recommend this to anyone with upcoming AC’s!

Arun has helped me tremendously, I couldn’t have secured a vacation scheme at Dentons without his help!
