I think this will probably be something that no one can answer universally. You could get an interviewer who thinks the lack of eye contact is awkward or something, I don't know. But personally, I'd never dock a candidate for that - I fail at making camera eye contact constantly and would never hold that against someone, it's really difficult if your camera isn't perfectly placed (I work on a huge monitor so my camera is unnaturally high for me to make eye contact, I can't both look at the camera and what's on my screen). I can't really see others docking points for this, but also can't speak for everyone.

Amen. It is frankly silly to mark someone down for not looking straight into the camera lens during the entire length of an interview.

Should we be emailing the places that haven't sent confirmations by they don't send anything by like Thursday afternoon?

Our CSO has said that today is fine. I'll be emailing this afternoon I think.

I did the Vancouver recruit and my experience is that they won't necessarily make eye contact either. Some of my interviewers were using two devices so they weren't looking at me most of the time. One set of interviewers didn't even have their camera on. Then there are the ones that are new to the platform and don't know how to let you in, or have sound issues, or were tuning in on their phone, or from a large board room, or whatever. All this is to say, don't worry too much about eye contact.

I second this. 2 out of the 3 firms in Van I ended up actually doing interviews with had people apologizing for looking at different screens, so they were barely even watching me. On top of that, somehow my video was about 10 seconds behind reality, so they had no way to connect my actions to my words. I still got a job offer lol so do your best to look at the camera, but don't get freaked out if you look away.

Does anyone have a list of behavioral questions and would not mind sharing for a law firm interview?

Did you not accept a job in Vancouver?

I was waiting on the UNIFOR email to decline the interview. When they called to book the interview they didn't leave any contact info.

Good luck to everyone! No matter what happens this week, you're all amazing and there will be more opportunities if Wednesday doesn't turn out as planned.

    • Something important to remember is that as a lawyer, your reputation is everything. You start building this reputation as soon as you enter law schoo, and thus you should get used to considering how your actions, words, and commitments during law school may reflect on your eventual reputation as an lawyer. How the above relates to working during law school, is that if you choose to do so, you should be prepared to be open and ready to explain how your work commitment affects you, and why it may limit your ability to participate fulsomely in law school life at times. For example, you can expect to do a non-insignificant amount of group work- both in classes, and outside. You will need to be prepared to explain clearly what your work commitment entails, and should do so at the earliest opportunity, so as to ensure your colleagues can plan appropriately. You do not want to be the flakey student, who can never meet at times that work for the rest of your team, though has not communicated why, or attempted to compromise their schedule for the benefit of the team as a whole. 
    • Following because I’m in the same situation!
    • I’m not sure when it changed online but I received the email February 12th 
    • It is going to be online for sure. We aren't going to vaccinate enough people by then and the threat of variants is too high. There is no way universities will be in person for fall 2021. 
    • UBC has no problem accepting 3rd year candidates provided you have the requisite credits. Are you sure you don’t want to finish your degree? I know some people who’ve expressed regrets about not finishing their degree but it’s not otherwise a hindrance in getting a job, all things being equal.
