Stupid idea. Reply Link Anonymous 6 April 2009 at 15:35 I think getting to meet non-lawyers during an assessment day is a brilliant idea to help you get a better idea about the culture of firm. Reply Link Anonymous 6 April 2009 at 16:10 I think it provides a practical way to assess the person’s ability to make an impact in a short time frame. A skill which many lawyers cannot always be taught yet need in so many situations when landing new clients.

Nothing to lose, everything to gain! Reply Link Anonymous 10 April 2009 at 23:14 I was on their assessment day too, and like ‘a schemer’ got through. It was definitely the best part of the day, perhaps because it was so novel and it gave us a genuine chance to speak to employees from across the firm. For most conversations, I wished it could have lasted more than three minutes! Reply Link Anonymous 21 April 2009 at 22:08 I also attended and got through. I think it helped my chances a great deal as i am a “well rounded” applicant, so i got to show the firm that there is more to me than my standard 2.1 degree.
