Interview Question

Law Clerk Interview Washington, DC

They asked a few questions about my resume in particular

  including extra curriculars from undergrad (over 7 years prior). Other specific questions included: 1. How do you feel about excel spreadsheets? 2. What would you do if you had a memo due to 1 judge but needed to review 100+ pages of testimony at the same time.

Interview Answer

1 Answer


1. Great. I worked in excel for four years prior to law school and am incredibly comfortable navigating and reviewing spreadsheets.
2. I would be completely transparent with my judges about my workload. I would stay late to complete both requirements. If I saw the burden as too great, I would see if it was plausible or made sense to get help for another clerk or to request an extension on one of the assignments.
