and if you look at a&g's website, they say they're looking for people with a good dose of common sense -- so apply apply apply your knowledge to the facts. don't rattle of legal principles with minimal application. you should always go back to the facts, and really, have some common sense when answering the question. don't get too wrapped up in legal principles that you forget common sense.

hope this helps!
thanks for the help, btw whats the discord link if i may ask?

Which firm? Think might be okay to share since the firms who do that gloat about it publicly

Excellent post sir, not OP but absolutely constructive and helpful advice to your juniors (or incoming juniors) at the Bar.

Yes, it would also be helpful if you know a few seniors so they can help you with the commonly asked questions regarding your practice area. I've done these kinds of interviews and you will have to know contract and equity principles well. Company is also likely, especially if your TC is with a transactional practice.

The interviewer will likely not expect too much from a recent graduate but if your answer is sound (grounded in the right principles) and makes sense, it will be fine. If you are applying for a role in litigation, remember to structure your answer.

Sometimes i wonder if the Oxbridge grads have a sinilar social network, for them to share network and tips and introductions. That way, their power is entrenched

it's only accessible by nus law students! so if you are not from nus law, even if i send you the link you won't be able to view it (the channel is private). if you are from nus law and don't know what the hell i'm talking about, check your batch's tele channel, they should have the link there, or just ask around. if it's your first time visiting the discord channel, you might have to wait a few days because your account needs to be approved by the admins before you can access it.
