Summer Associate Interview

Summer Associate
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Latham & Watkins.

Interview Details – Submitted resume through law school for on-campus screening interview, which was accepted. The interview was one-on-one for a little more than half an hour. Shortly afterwards, was invited to firm for follow-up interviews, which was with six different associates and partners for half an hour, plus an hour-long lunch with two more attorneys. They tried to match interviewers with interests and desired practice areas. Offers were extended by phone within a few weeks after the callback interviews.

Interview Question – The interview lunch, though that doesn't exactly count as an interview "question." It's more of a situation test to see how well you can handle the kind of social situation that is the bread and butter of business development and client interaction.   Answer Question

Attorney, 4th-Year Interview

Attorney, 4th-Year
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Latham & Watkins in September 2008.

Interview Details – Hiring is largely driven by the second-year summer associate program; I assume it is much more difficult and market-driven to get hired as a third year law school student.

Interview Question – No unexpected questions; most difficult part was demonstrating fit.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There are no negotiations.
