I’m a second year associate with a split lit/transactional practice interviewing (second round) for an in house position this week. Interview is with the general counsel. Any interview tips? Wondering what questions I should make sure to ask and what skills to highlight given it’s a more entry level in house position and they know I’m coming from firm experience. Thanks in advance!

Good luck.


Check out goinhouse.com interview guide. Read lawyer whisperer blog. Sterling Milker's Ten Things blog is helpful (but voluminous). ACC has guides on the web too that are free to non subscribers. Talk about partnering closely with the business and a desire to see more projects fully though to implementation, not just providing advice or doing deals and walking away. GL! You got this!

Thank you so much!!
