Look closely at the group you’re interviewing with. Any recent matters that have been notable? Also, study the background of the attorneys you’re interviewing with. Make sure they talk about the way their career has progressed at the firm.

This is great advice! Researching the attorneys before hand is key. Helps you think of ways to relate and be more personal in your interview

Lawyers love to talk about themselves. Ask lots of questions about their personal experiences and be sure to relate any of your own stories back to your skills and interests.

All of my good interviews have been a conversation. I know it's hard advice, but try to relax and just talk. Jiving is the most important thing since you're already qualified if you go the interview. (Remember that too!)

I agree with all of the above. If you get any time alone with associates close to your class year it could also help to use that to learn more about the group culture you will be coming into. You might get good information out if it but either ready if will convey you are going to be mindful and make an effort to be a team player.

I agree with all of the above. Do your research about the firm and the attorney(s) you are interviewing with. Be prepared to answer questions like “why this firm” and also be prepared to ask questions. If the latter, ask questions concerning your interviewer, his/her career and try to address his/her specific situation. Lawyers love talking about themselves, especially those that conduct interviews.

Don’t be afraid to reach out to other associates in the group too for more info if it goes well. Show them you’re keen while still getting the info you need.

As part of unit reorganization due to economic slowdown, a couple of months ago, my temporary contract was not renewed, even if my feedbacks were excellent. Do you think that it would be better to “lie” in the cv and during interviews telling that I am still working for the employer or it is better to tell the truth saying that currently I am unemployed, even if there could be some biases due to the working statement? And how it would be a nice way to justify the unemployment statement?

Looking for some advice from fellow fishes here. How important do you all think it is to have a second baby ? We have a 2 year old now and we are trying for our 2nd. We have been trying for over a year now and started fertility treatment recently. I am not looking forward to IUI, IVF etc especially since we don’t have any much help and my husband and I both have full time jobs. Is it a deal breaker for our kid not to have a sibling ? Is it going to be worth the pain to go through fertility?
