    Summer Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    The job was obtained through a recruiting firm. There was an initial meeting with a partner, followed by meetings with a couple more partners and a few associates. The meetings were held at the firm's office. Second round had a greater focus on fit and personality. Offer came within a couple of weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • No unexpected questions; most difficult part was demonstrating fit.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There are no negotiations.
