    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Quinn Emanuel in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was focused on whether you can do the job, and whether you have the experience to handle such a competitive environment. It was a more adversarial interview than most I have had with law firms--these are litigators with little taste for beating around the bush.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Quinn Emanuel in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very brief phone screen, < 30 minutes, before they flew me out for an on-site interview. Met two midlevel associates and went to lunch with one, then met the hiring partner in the afternoon. They asked several variations of 'why do you want to work at this particular firm' and seemed happy with variations on 'I like the focus on litigation' and 'I like the focus on results over presentation' (a flattering framing of the non-dress-code and generally less-formal atmosphere).
