|All day||Mock Interview Program for 1Ls|
Career Services Interview Suite (TNH 3.122)
Each spring the CSO hosts the Mock Interview Program for 1Ls (as well as 2Ls & 3Ls if space permits) to practice interviewing with actual attorneys. Mock interviews provide students with valuable interviewing experience and offer attorneys an opportunity to meet our exceptional students and introduce these students to the legal interviewing process.
Mock interviews will be 20-minutes in length followed by a 10-minute review. Dress professionally as you would for a real interview on the day of your mock interview.
To prepare for your upcoming interviews, please watch the Preparing for Legal Interviews in Five Steps video (9:01 minutes) or review the Five Steps brochure (PDF) and be sure you have completed your Interview Preparation Worksheet (Word).For more information visit https://law.utexas.edu/calendar/2019/01/24/44106/
