    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Linklaters in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus and got a call back to interview at the NY office. The interview was fairly standard except for a situational component in which they make you memorize a scenario and then explain how you would handle it. The senior attorney tells you everything you propose will not work, so you have to keep coming up with things. The worst part was they gave that to you before your first interview and then you weren't quizzed until the end of the day.
