Callback Question

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 28, 2011 9:21 pm

I have a callback and was not sent the list of attorneys the night before...it is sunday night, so maybe the weekend+hurricane had to do with it...

is that normal?

Not all firms give you a list.

It's probably a good idea to print a list of all their attorneys, as well as a quick set of facts to remember them by, and bring them to your callback (make sure it's alphabetical too). Then you'll be somewhat prepared.

Email the recruiter and ask. Sometimes they forget or only do so upon request. Even if she gets back to you in the morning, if you have a smartphone, you can look them up right before your interview.

OP here...but how can I phrase it -- its possible the hurricane threw things off and I dont want them to find me annoying...Do I say--"Would it be possible to send me a list of the attorneys I will be interviewing with, if it is available?"

I can't see why that would be objectionable if politely requested. "Would it be possible to see a list of the attorneys with whom I will be interviewing tomorrow?" or something like that. No need to ask about the hurricane; it may just be that they usually don't do it.

I think that, while it would be nice to have a list, it's usually possible to ask intelligent questions about their practice w/o knowing what that practice is going in. Some sites can be terribly uninformative anyway; I interviewed with a partner last week who wasn't listed in a single practice group.
