Rad, have you already gone on your SA CBs? I'm trying to anticipate some questions/situations that'll arise.
To those going on firm interviews, I highly recommend this:
This book is pretty good. I also recommend "Swimming Lessons for Baby Sharks." Gives you a good idea about questions to ask re: training and opportunities for young associates. Almost EVERY question I've asked at my firm callbacks have come directly from questions this book encouraged me to ask, and I've gotten lots of compliments on my questions.
Main question themes on my 1L callbacks have been:
- How's [insert school]
- Why us? Which practice areas of ours would you like to experience this summer (since 1Ls get so much more flexibility than 2Ls, generally)? Litigation or Corporate or both?
- Why a firm for 1L summer? (often followed up by a suggestion to split 2L summer between a firm and public interest; many liked when I had a specific reason why I wasn't doing a particular public interest org until 2d summer)
- Why [insert city]? Do you want to build a career here, or just come here this summer?
Almost every question I've gotten fits within these categories. I now have stock answers for each that seem more off-the-cuff than they are.
