Law school admissions interviews are held online, or over the phone. I'm not aware of a single law school that conducts in-person interviews (even for domestic students).

Northwestern and Vanderbilt did when I applied, but only if you were in town (or in Vanderbilt's case, if there were alumni in town).

Regardless, most schools don't even interview, OP. Those that do absolutely use Skype.

Ah, I stand corrected (did not apply to NW or Vandy).

But in any case, OP won't be treated any differently than the vast majority of domestic applicants, who'll all do Skype interviews. (I recall Harvard had an option for a phone interview if there was difficulty with Skype, but Skype was the "default" method.)

I'm not trying to be rude, but I just want to note that if I were you (going off the incredibly small sample size of two short posts) I would find some way to spend a good amount of time in an English speaking country before attending (at the least try to move a few months earlier). If you are coming in as a JD (which is what it sounds like) any language impediment is going to be very rough when you start since it's all on a curve.
