Big Law Interview Advice

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Mar 05, 2015 7:24 pm

First, I had an initial screener where the hiring partner offered me a call back right on the spot. Is that normal? (I'm sure it is just wondering). Second, what can I do to get prepared for this interview? I've only interviewed w/ a federal judge, and IP boutique, so this will be my first big law interview. I know these interviews last 3+ hours. I'm just trying to get an idea of what I should expect to go on.

There are literally an infinite number of threads that explain the callback interview process, questions you'll be asked, questions to ask, etc... Do some research.

I disagree that the number is literally infinity.

Be confident, but not cocky. IP (EE CS) is hot. You can easily get a job in any other firms.
