This is usually informal at my firm and aimed at allowing the existing associates a chance to get a feel for whether you’re a good culture fit (I.e, making sure you don’t come across as a weirdo in a short 1 hour informal meeting). Don’t think you really need to prepare, other than to think about any questions you might want to ask the incumbent associates off the record (what are the hours *really* like etc).

Good idea — I hope it is!
