    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orrick (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews - one with associates, one with partners. Also met with HR. Very relaxed, as Orrick is known for its less corporate culture. In total, I believe I met with five associates, three partners, and three people from HR - all of whom were extremely nice. Be prepared going into the interviews to know exactly why you want to work as a paralegal and why you want to work at Orrick.
