  • 8. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Baker McKenzie
  • Think deeply about why your interests align with the firm's strategy and direction. The video interview is perhaps the most difficult element of the process so prepare lots of scenario answers that fit within the time limit. Ask as many questions as you can possibly think of as the advice given to me by the General Counsel of the firm was: there are no stupid questions, only easy answers - and people like giving easy answers because it makes them look good, so ask away!
