What exactly did they ask you? We're all still waiting for the results I guess there's still hope.

I canít really recall cos I was feeling damn nervous. Their Qs towards me were generally to see if I have interest in fam law.

i believe as long as the results are not out .. there is chance... don't get discourage.

my friend was asked, how do you intend to fund your studies if you are selected? had you taken any tuition grant from the government? so for one moment he got excited... then one of the District Court Judge stated to ask him on his commitment to community law ... etc. why choose community law etc..

he also asked him, after he is called to the bar, what he intend to do.

I really wasn't asked any of this. I just kept smiling at them like an idiot. haha, then they asked if I did any community work and I said no cos I didn't think of that and he said "fair enough". My interview time was as short as 5 to 7 mins. I AM A GONER. T_T

Yeah I got asked those as well. They also asked for assurance that I'll stick to crim and fam once called.

Let's all hope for good news. Personally I'm not optimistic.

LLB. My LNAT was 28. I dunno I just felt my lack of community involvement didn't impress them. I'm just gonna type below the breakdown of what happened during my interview.

- the usual "why you?"
- describe the process and papers involved for a simplified divorce and a criminal offence, from interviewing of client up till case conclusion.
- why does a certain race tend to commit a certain offence.
- give us assurance that you will stay in fam and crim practice once called.
- give us your family background.
- tell us about your area of work and your boss' experience.
- tell us about any community work.
- are you willing to take up mandarin if selected.

That's about it I think.
