    I applied online – interviewed at Vinson & Elkins (London, England) in July 2014.


    Initial interview (for VS)
     admin and head of trainees -relatively informal and relaxed, 20-30 minutes. Mini presentation to prep -straight forward, though some level of law and commercial awareness crucial. A few questions on the presentation and also general questions -nothing too shocking/difficult.
    -got the VS.

    Second interview (for TC)
    still the relaxed style
    Associate and head of trainees
    Run through of the report/answer you had to complete during the week
    Try to approach from a different angle
    Explain your points thoroughly and use supporting sources
    General chat about the week

    Didn't get TC but was close I think.
