What is commercial awareness?

Commercial awareness is generally one of the most feared aspects of an interview process. However, this tends to be more because applicants don’t really understand what is meant by commercial awareness, which can make it very difficult to prepare.

This video forms part of Commercial Law Academy's 'Commercial awareness in context' course, which explains the meaning of commercial awareness, how it comes up in interviews, how to develop it, what to consider when discussing current affairs, and how to structure your answers to commercial awareness questions.
