Mock Interview Program for 1Ls

Each spring the CSO conducts 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 Students

Priority is given to 1Ls. If interview slots remain available, the CSO will notify 2Ls and 3Ls that they may register as well. Be sure to sign-up early as interviews are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

For Employers

Student response to this program in the past has been overwhelming as they appreciate practicing for the “real thing.” As an employer, you will find that participating in our program is a wonderful way to preview our students as well as increase your recognition on campus. There is no cost to participate in the program.

Students will submit their resumes and schedule their mock interview(s) online. In addition, employers will be able to view student resumes prior to coming on campus. As interviewers will represent his/her actual employer, please be sure to update your employer’s Symplicity profile as students will be researching your organization
