Preparing for Externships

Post by tlsadmin3 » Wed Dec 23, 2020 2:29 pm

As the second semester begins and first semester grades are finalized, most 1L's will start to interview for externships. Preparing for an externship, particularly if you haven't worked for an attorney or at a firm beforehand, can be daunting. Information about a firm's culture, dress code, and norms aren't always provided in a listing, or even in an interview.

How did you prepare for your first externship? Did you ask particular questions beforehand, or learn on the job? Share your insight below.
