Master the Selection Day Process

Many lawyers who would make excellent judges fail to get appointed for the wrong reasons. It is not usually down to a lack of ability or preparation but one or more of the following:

  • Not being familiar with what is required by competency-based processes.
  • Not have done an interview in years and sometimes never having been subjected to a competency based interview.
  • Not firing on all cylinders during their selection day in the way they normally would in their professional life;
  • Consequently, underperforming  and coming across like a rabbit in headlights.

This is often a shock to many lawyers who are used to consistently performing well under pressure in court or challenging client meetings. Applicants will rarely come out of a selection day saying that the interview questions or role play scenarios were difficult. They usually recognise that it was their performance that let them down.

What is not appreciated is that when one is outside of their comfort zone, with something vested in the outcome and the questions are about them, underperformance is the norm.

No matter how thorough your preparation, if you have do not understand what the right targets are and how to hit them and have not engaged in effective mental preparation, then you will inevitably fail to give your selection day your best shot.
