Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
#1 Be Yourself! Think deeply about who you are and what is important to you and showcase that in the interview. Law firms are businesses where you engage with real-life people, not textbooks.
Graduate, Auckland
Do some research on the firm and have some key points you can note that are different to other firms. Prepare a few questions. Be yourself and show your personality.
Graduate, Christchurch
Be yourself, be ready to describe yourself and who it is you are - this is probably more important and tends to require more thought than the "factual" aspects of your experience, university experiences or grades.
Graduate, Christchurch
Be energetic, humble, down to earth and show that you are keen to learn and to get involved in the firm (not just professionally, but socially). Don't try to be too perfect - but try to be someone that others would want to work with.
Graduate, Auckland
Self-confidence is key. Good grades help. Dress professionally. Be genuine and show interest in the firm.
