Why did you choose to go to this firm (either lateral or summer)?
Why did you choose [specific practice area]? Did you try other practice areas? Why did you choose not to go into those?
Is associate responsibility determined by class year, asking for specific work, proving you can handle it, or all of the above?
What percentage of your projects are cross-staffed across offices?
Why did you/didn't you choose to clerk?
What do you think is the biggest differentiator between your firm and peer firms?

Also, specific questions about their history is always a good way to go. Why did you choose to switch careers or science major to law, etc.?

EDIT: Also, it shouldn't be hard to come up with questions. Be truthful and genuine. What are things you are legitimately curious about? The above things are what I'm interested in finding out about when I meet attorneys. It might be different for you.

Don't think of this as an exam. Think and be genuine.
