I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Linklaters in August 2012.Interview Details
The callback interview totalled 4 hours: HR person, 3 partners, 1 associate, each for 30-40 minutes.
The part with HR was somewhat the most difficult because they asked me somethings that I wasn't prepared for such as "tell us about a way you solved a problem in an imaginative, creative way."
The interviews with the partners were very different one from the other.
The first one was more formal, kind of what I was expecting. I got to ask many questions.
The second partner actually tasked, "what do you want?"
The third partner was the co-managing partner for the NY office.
Overall, all the partners were very inviting and laid back.
The last person I met with was a mid-level associate, she basically just answered questions about her work and involvement with summer associates.
HR behavioral questions:
What did you like about your undergraduate? About your 1L?
A moment you are proud of?
A moment where you solved a problem in an imaginative way?
How do you start a new project, what do you do?
What is important for you about the people you work with?
