    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cadwalader Wickersham (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There are first and second round interviews. The first round, I met with a senior paralegal and a recruiter. The interview lasted about an hour, and most of it was them describing the job in great detail. The only interviewing we really did was them asking me about various things on my resume. No hard ball questions or anything.
    The second round was much more intense - I met with 11 different people total: 5 current paralegals and 6 different attorneys. The paralegals asked basic resume questions, but the attorneys were the ones more likely to throw out questions a little bit tougher. However, everyone was incredibly nice, conversational, and easy to connect with.
