    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • Great! Every single person I reached out to was willing to have a chat about the work they do in the team/firm and elaborate more on the services of the firm, the clients they advise and personal insight. The events put together by grad rec were also very beneficial in terms of understanding the business and training contract.

  • 8. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Baker McKenzie
  • - Video interview: try to remain calm. You have time between questions to recharge your brain if you need to. So no need to rush questions. If one question goes bad, take a few moments to collect yourself and then start the next one. - Have your why law/why Baker McKenzie/why you questions ready to go - Try to engage with the firm (I attended an open day and found it very useful)
