    The company is amazing. Senior management really cares about their people and it's evident everyday. I would recommend anyone working for this law firm.


    You need to take control of your own career here - someone is not going to chase you down for a promotion, but once you take the step to talk to someone, the conversation will happen.

    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Linklaters (New York, NY) in August 2012.


    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. Interview questions: 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? Worked in a team lead by someone else? A difficult situation you managed by yourself? What would I see if you were stressed out? What types of situations put you under pressure? Describe a good week. One of the partners' questions was, Why Linklaters?
