Legal Intern Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Shook Hardy & Bacon.
Interview Details – I applied during my first year of law school for a fellowship/intern position that next fall. After applying, I was selected for an interview and scheduled one during the allotted available times. The interview was really laid-back and enjoyable for the most part. Almost too much so because I worried that I'd merely had a pleasant interaction rather than given either partner a reason to single me out as the best candidate. I think they may have already made their decisions for the most part prior to the interviews; the interview was more of a formality to make sure the candidate had a decent personality, at least for what I interviewed for.
Interview Question – There really wasn't a particularly difficult question, as I discussed above. However, because wanted to make sure that did stand out, I took something one of the partners said in the interview to heart. She said that one of the most important things in being a great attorney is being proactive. After the interview, I emailed both partners I interviewed with and told them that, in the spirit of being proactive, I wanted to make sure they knew how much I wanted this opportunity and how hard I would work if given the chance. I don't know if it helped but apparently it didn't hurt because I was offered the fellowship. Answer Question
