No pants, that's for sure


Thanks that's helpful. Will leave off the pants.


Wore the tie, took off my pants. I think the interview went well, got some weird looks sitting in a glass-front office though...


Good luck, OP. Make sure there's no awkwardly placed mirror behind you!


Tie but no pants


Which country?

I would say Tie (almost anywhere outside US)

What country and what is the interview for - global mobility? Germany = yes definitely; India = probably not

UK = depends on industry/group. Canada/Australia = No

Does anyone have resources on understanding whether/how legal advocacy matters, how it actually achieves what it purports to achieve? Been doing this nearly 5 years now and just really don’t see how all the effort is worth it. I don’t get the sense that outcomes are impacted by skill level, work quality, time spent. Seems you can make your client’s case worse (e.g., by missing a deadline or some egregious error), but that’s about it. So, practice of law feels quite pointless. What am I missing?
