NYC Law Department

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Sep 03, 2012 11:27 am

Does anyone have any information on the interview process (how many rounds, types of questions, etc.) for either the 2L Honors Program or permanent counsel positions? Information on here seems scarce.

Interview process for permanent positions and 2L positions are the same. Screener --> panel --> maybe a meet and greet with a young attorney --> meeting with the head of hiring --> maybe a meeting with an executive . (the italicized may not happen in every case)

Anyone know what a screener is like with them and the size of an average class since they take a substantial amount of first year corporation counsels from their summer interns? Thanks for the help!

A screener at the NYC law department is largely the same as a screener for any other type of legal job. Have the materials you're supposed to have (see website), and demonstrate a genuine interest in public service in NYC. The panel stage is when things can get a bit tricky, and you may be asked to demonstrate some relevant legal knowledge and highlight some litigation specific skills.

Has anyone heard back from the Law Dept.? Had an interview in October and still haven't heard anything good or bad.
