Mock Interview (TCLA team)

(12 customer reviews)


Schedule a one-to-one mock interview with Jaysen, the founder of TCLA. Our mock interview will last for one hour and take place through Skype.


We have conducted mock interviews with hundreds of candidates over the past three years. We believe they are the best way to convert an interview into an offer, and many of our former interviewees have gone on to secure training contracts across the spectrum of law firms, including the magic circle and top US firms.

Our mock interviews will be tailored to the firm you are applying to and the specific interview you can expect to have. If you let us know in advance, we can also simulate M&A case study interviews by giving you a document to read 30 minutes before your interview. For some firms, we have information about the kinds of interview questions that candidates have been asked in recent cycles.

We’ll begin with a discussion about your background, strengths and weaknesses, and your prior interview experiences. Based on the firm you’re applying to, we’ll practice a combination of firm-specific, competency, scenario-based and commercial questions.

Our mock interviews are fairly tough: we’ll pick up on the points you mention, any discrepancies in your application and/or press you on commercial issues. But that’s the way it should be because we want you to learn how to answer challenging questions in our practice session, so you can excel in the real thing.

We’ll provide question-by-question feedback throughout the interview, as well as detailed feedback on your overall performance at the end.

  1. Fez

    I very much recommend the TCLA team for any candidate in need of a mock interview. The team is experienced, and often has access to actual interview reports provided by other candidates, so their mock interviews are realistic. The team also offers great feedback and spends a lot of time helping you to improve your answers by using your actual CV and experiences.

    I had an interview with Jaysen and he advises and explains how to successfully ace an interview really well. He continuously gives examples to help to put things in context. He covered potential questions from commercial awareness to competencies. We have also been working through relevant questions based on a case study tailored to the firm to help me answer the questions confidently.

  3. Pavla

    I strongly recommend the whole team of TCLA! I have had two different mock interviews and both were very useful! The team will really tailor their advice to the specific ‘problem areas’ that come out of your application and they will put a lot of time examining it in the first place!

  4. Dani Whittingham

    I had booked several interviews with Jaysen and he was extremely patient and assuring during the process. He also tailors questions according to the firm and I am extremely appreciative of his help and expertise.

  5. Saira Hussain

    I would thoroughly recommend the mock interviews. I had mine with Jaysen a day before my successful training contract assessment centre, and was very anxious. He provided fantastic, indepth advice and expertise, critiqued my responses in great detail, and provided me with the confidence and motivation I required to succeed. He helped me to structure the questions I struggled with, challenged me to debate and develop my answers, and was exceptional in guiding me throughout the interview process. This was the core area in which I struggled, and with the support of TCLA I was sucessful!

  6. AC

    I would defo recommend this. Jaysen is very experienced and has provided me with detailed, tailored advice according to my application. A lot of the things covered in the mock (competency, commercial awareness etc.) are similar to the real interview. He is also very nice and patient. I am really grateful for his help!

  7. Bozidar

    Excellent interview prep! Jaysen gave useful pointers throughout and helped me distinguish which subjects I’m good at and which ones still need some improvement. Also wasn’t easy on the questions, there were some genuinely hard ones there, so I feel more than ready for my interviews.

  8. Seyed

    Very straightforward with the style of interview. Asked key questions and provided insightful reviews of the answers. Would recommend if you have done initial preparation.

  9. Julian Ng

    Jaysen and I had a great session where he helped me with a case study interview and general interview skills. The feedback was detailed and useful.

    The most valuable aspect for me was that it gave me a big confidence boost as Jaysen also pointed out strong aspects of my interviewing and advised on how to replicate this in the real thing.

    Would thoroughly recommend this service!

  10. RachelK27

    I would definitely recommend the mock interview experience before an upcoming Assessment Centre.

    Jaysen has a wealth of knowledge that he can share and he will highlight the main areas that you have to work on (which can make a HUGE difference).

    Most of all Jaysen will give you the confidence to effectively tackle that interview and assessment centre.

  11. ELA

    I would absolutely recommend the mock interview with Jaysen.

    Jaysen is amazing at giving clear, precise and constructive feedback and tips to help improve responses to a range of interview questions. He also specifically tailors the mock interview to you and your needs, your experience to date and the firm you are interviewing with, which is incredibly helpful.

    And, he is great at pointing out strengths and boosting your confidence, which is just what you need before an interview.

    Overall, it’s a fantastic way to practise and boost your confidence before the real interview – thank you!

  12. AlexS1998

    I’m so glad I booked a mock interview with Jaysen. Before the actual interview, we talked about my stage in the application cycle and points that I felt like I needed to work on. The mock interview was helpful because Jaysen gave detailed feedback after every question. It has also definitely boosted my confidence for my upcoming interview.
