Are you in the process of applying for law-related work experience? Then this workshop might be exactly what you need to succeed in securing a spot on your preferred scheme.
Online applications… One thing is for certain, they take an enormous amount of time to perfect, especially the questions that require 250-word answers. So why not attend our workshop to get an advantage over your peers to see what law firms are actually looking for in online applications? BPP is the service provider for over 60 UK and international law firms (such as, but not limited to, Clifford Chance, DWF, Allen & Overy, Freshfields, Slaughter & May, and Walker Morris LLP) which means that we can help you understand what our numerous exclusive clients look for in applicants.
Competency and strength based questions… How do you actually prepare for them? What do you actually say? If you have ever wondered about the answer to any of these questions, then this event is for you.
A great CV and cover letter will get you far for sure. It’s the first thing law firms/chambers look at after all. So how do you make a good, long-lasting first-impression through a piece (or perhaps 3 in this case) of paper? We will give you our top tips for writing a great CV and cover letter to help you get your foot through the door.
Did you hear about that guy who got rejected from a scheme? Or maybe you heard about the girl who made the same mistake as the previous 57 applicants… In our workshop, we will help you avoid the common pitfalls and give you guidance as to how to turn your rejection into a lesson so you don’t repeat it the next time you apply for a place.
Moreover, video and Skype interviews are becoming more common in the application process. So what exactly happens in these kind of interviews? How do you actually succeed in an online interview? We will be discussing the different interview styles and how to keep your cool in all of them.
It’s normal to be stressed out about an upcoming interview; a different environment then the one you’re used to, strangers asking you if you would like a cup of tea, people staring at you with full intensity and you trying not to blank out when they ask you about your reasons for applying for the position. Fear not, this event will equip you with the interview tips and techniques you need to make a good impression and succeed to the next stage.
Furthermore, you will be able to meet a BPP representative who will be able to answer any other questions you may have regarding the GDL, LPC and BPTC.
This event is open to all students, regardless of their degree and year of study.
