    Law Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Chicago (Chicago, IL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    It took a very long time to get notified of the interview. Once the process began, they couldn't ask anything directly as it was all scripted due to the Shakman Decree. This decree took out the entire worth of interviewing. I just managed to get lucky and obtain the job.
