Unfortunately that the sad reality for most of us. Nothing we can do about it except to suck it up.

but if you're not from nus, then i'll just tell you here as much as i can without doxxing myself. the topics they test in the case study is not dependent on the practice area you're going for. my friends who applied for other departments had the exact same case study as me. general advice is to study your company law, contract law, and equity modules well. these foundational concepts should serve you well and should cover most of the issues in the case study, no matter what they throw at you.

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?

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.
