    Corporate Paralegal Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Morrison & Foerster (San Francisco, CA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Quite simple. A few meetings with attorneys as well as with other paralegals. The questions were not very difficult and more about why I wanted to work at MoFo, what experience I had, etc. They're not trying to trick you with anything.
