Job interview at legal firm

When have you delivered/received great service? What did you do/receive? *

When I was working in Vodafone, a elderly man had come in and was having trouble with a new phone had given him for his birthday. It was the iphone 5s. He had trouble getting to grips with it and wanted help to set up email, etc, numbers, explained every setting. He was worried at the queue building up but I made him feel at ease.

Give an example of where you have seen an opportunity to improve something and have acted upon it. What did you do? What happened as a result? *

When I was working at Vodafone I realised that all of the accessories were cluttered and in no particular order. I approached my manager and informed him that it was difficult for customers to find headphones, memory cards, cases etc and more and more customers were asking staff members if they had specific accessories in store which were not obviously visible on the display. As a result, I asked my manager for permission to put the products in alphabetical order on the shelf and according to size so as to increase sales and make it easier for customers to find what they were looking for. The manager agreed and the situation was improved dramatically.

 

Tell me about a time when you failed to complete a task or project on time, despite intending to do so.

 

During my final year at university I failed to deliver my third year project by the due date. This was because I was heavily involved in cutting-edge research right up until the end of my course and was waiting for imminent results from surveys being undertaken by researchers at other academic institutions.

Considering this was my final piece of academic work, I wanted to ensure it was based on the most accurate and up-to-date sources of information available, even if this meant a delay in production. To ensure no marks were deducted from my dissertation, I contacted my course director and personal tutor two weeks before my dissertation due date to discuss my particular situation. I argued my case, and was consequently allowed an extra two weeks to produce my work.

Although my work was delayed, I feel that this delay was justified in that the work was of the highest quality it could be. Furthermore, I sufficiently organised myself in relation to my department and tutors, so that all relevant people were aware of a possible delay in the production of my dissertation.

Depositors

Depositor/Dispositee. This guide is brought to you by Notary public London

Goldsmiths retained jewellery for safekeeping, Issued receipts. Sometimes receipts traded. Also lent money on strength of items deposited. A person who is making a deposit with the bank is known as a depositor. The depositor is the lender of the money which will be returned to him/her at the end of the deposit period.

The person with whom something is deposited is the Dispositee

Debtor and creditor, when depositor pays money into bank ceases to be depositor’s property becomes property of bank to do as it wishes

Under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 s75 deals with connected lender liability. The premise of this act is that breaches of a contract by sale by trade seller will have implications for the creditor in terms of the back to back consumer credit or consumer hire purchase. It directs that if a debtor

This relationship was described by Lord MacKay in Royal Bank of Scotland v Skinner case

Relationship of customer and banker is neither a relation of principal and agent nor a relation of a fiduciary nature, trust, or the like, but a simple relation – it may be one sided, or it may be two-sided – of creditor–debtor. The banker is not, in the general case, the custodian of money. When money is paid in, despite the popular belief, it is simply consumed by the banker, who gives an obligation of equivalent amount”.

That statement accurately reflects the position under English Law as decided in Foley v Hill above. Where the customer has more than one account (one in debit and one in credit) and the banker has an exercisable right of set-off between the accounts, it is the net balance (if any) which the bank is liable to repay to the customer. In the circumstances once money, whether representing the proceeds of a benefit payment or any other source, is credited to a bank account it simply becomes a debt due by the bank to the account holder and it is not necessary to identify the source of the funds credited to the account.

Discuss, with reference to authority when the law will deem a partnership to exist?

“…in the eyes of the law and in particular s.1 of the 1890 Act, partnership is a relationship that is determined by the substance of the interactions between the parties, and not by their conscious wishes or the designation which they choose to apply to that relationship.”

(Milman, A Review of Recent Developments in Partnership Law, Company Law Newsletter, 2009, 251, 1-5)

Discuss, with reference to authority when the law will deem a partnership to exist?

There is confusion as to what deems a partnership. It could be said that partnerships have existed for as long as business has been conducted but until the Partnership Act 1890 most of the law relating to the operation and status of partnerships developed through case law precedent. In regards to section 1 of the 1890 act; it defines a partnership “Partnership is the relation which subsists between persons carrying on a business in common with a view of profit.” The fundamental problem here is that, in the eyes of the law and in particular s.1 of the 1890 Act, partnership is a relationship that is determined by the substance of the interactions between the parties, and not by their conscious wishes or the designation which they choose to apply to that relationship.” I will be discussing what deems a partnership to exist and how we understand it to exist.

The relationship of partnership may be deliberately chosen or it may exist without the partners having made any conscious choice. The partnership may exist even though the joint ventures have said in a written agreement that they are not going to be “partners”. The test always is whether the statutory definition is satisfied. If it is, they are partners regardless of what their agreement says
