Calling all Asian-Canadian law students! FACL BC is pleased to present a new mock interviews event as part of the ongoing series: Navigating the Recruitment Process as an Asian-Canadian Law Student. This online mock interview event will provide the opportunity to prepare for this process to students from law schools across BC. 

This event will begin with a panel discussion with legal employers of various sizes and practice areas, providing tips for success when going through the interview in the recruitment process. After learning about the best practices for interviewees, law students will have the opportunity to implement what they have just learned in a mock interview with legal practitioners from diverse fields of the law. The event will begin with the panel discussion at 5:30pm on Tuesday, September 13 (with interviews following immediately afterwards), and additional interviews will begin at 5:30pm on Wednesday, September 14.

Students will be registered for interview slots on Sept 13, and once all slots on Sept 13 are full, remaining students will be assigned to Sept 14. Each interview will last for 30 minutes, and there will be one interview per student. There is a possibility that students will be able to have two rounds of mock interviews, and if this is the case, a lottery system will be used to choose those students. Preference will be given to second year students.
