    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wilson Elser.

    Interview

    Had a quick telephone interview with HR. Was called in to interview a few days later. Met with a few individuals that day. Everyone was extremely nice and asked really good interview questions. The interview lasted approx. 45 minutes, but they made me feel comfortable the whole time. After the interview, one interviewer was kind enough to walk me out! Received an offer the next day!

    Law Clerk Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wilson Elser in April 2016.

    Interview

    You will be invited to the branch office to see the managing partner and hiring partner. The questions I encountered were very specific. The hiring partner previewed your cv and went through it in great details. The best strategy I think is to be ready to give a speech on every single activity listed on your cv and further articulate how such activity benefits you to be a good litigator.
