1. Streaming service description
Legal theatre – are live streamed group sessions of three forms: Demo interview, Live lectures, SQE2 seminars (jointly referred as “Services”).
A. DEMO INTERVIEW
The service is live streaming of a client interview, which includes a scheduled real-time video session and accompanying materials (jointly referred to as ‘Materials’). Except for the interaction between the panel candidate and the mock client, the session is non-interactive and does not involve input from the audience. Before the session, the attendees receive candidate instructions with a brief overview of the issues to be discussed. During the event, more information will be disclosed by the client. The interview will be conducted by a SQE2 candidate who is not familiar with the scenario and has not been specifically prepared for the session. After the session, the attendees will be provided with a fact sheet and the tentative suggested answer to show how the case could be analysed in the attendance note. One day after the scheduled end date, the attendees will receive a follow-up email from Zoom with the above Materials. PLEASE NOTE, THE ATTENDEES SHALL NOT BE PROVIDED WITH THE VIDEO RECORD.
Being convinced that the attendees may benefit from watching both the candidate’s good performance and the mistakes made, we may intentionally challenge the candidate.
Please be advised to follow the scenario and take notes of the questions you would ask the client should you conduct the interview yourself. SQE2 candidates are also advised to draft a handwritten attendance note after the session. You will be able to check the facts and answers against provided Materials.
