nothing crazy. getting to know you and making sure that they won't be driven crazy from dealing with you for a summer.
why you went to law school, interested practice areas, favorite subject in law school, what you studied in undergrad, what you expect to get out of the internship, etc.

Keep it simple and a little reserved. Err on the conservative side, better to say less than say something stupid. Show respect for the office, don't get too casual or jokey. They're not looking for anything magical out of you, they want to see that you have a reasonably nice personality and are a diligent and intelligent person, and the latter is largely handled by your grades, resume and writing sample.
