I have an interview with several partners for an AmLaw firm this week. Suggestions on questions to ask? Also how can I determine WLB/hours requirement, or should I wait until the associate interviews?

WLB for associates for sure -useful questions:

What’s the mentorship system like - is it formal, is a partner involved

Work assignments - is there a coordinator who’s going to make sure I’m getting good opportunities

Trainings - what are they like, how do they progress

Generic culture questions - answers are going to be meaningless but some partners very personally invested inoffice culture might be good to show you care

DEI - if you think partner didn’t vote red and won’t hate that you’re asking about it

Pretty sure you and check the entire firm’s records of donations so I would skip the DEI question.
