    I applied online. I interviewed at Sidley Austin (Pakistan)

    The interview will be set up by Graduate Recruitment. There is a one stage interview with a Partner. The interview is around 45 minutes and is very conversational, and the focus will be on understanding you and building rapport.
    Interview

    You will be asked to go through your CV, and other motivational questions, such as why Sidley, why commercial law. You will also be sent an article around 15 minutes before the interview and will be asked to discuss it during the interview. The article will typically be about a financial transaction/M&A deal from FT.
