Around 80 organizations participate in this high energy & interactive evening.

Practice Interview Programs

1L Practice Interview Program: We invite employers to visit the law school on Fridays in February each year to conduct practice interviews for 1L students. Many participating employers also host evening receptions in conjunction with their visit. Registration to participate opens in late November and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Learn more about the 2020 program here.

Rising 2L Practice Interviews: Every summer we match rising 2L students with practicing attorneys who are willing to assist students in honing their interviewing skills. Practice interviews take place in employer offices across the US in June. The program also provides the employer with the opportunity to have meaningful contact with students in advance of fall recruitment. Please subscribe to this mailing list to be contacted in April or May regarding summer practice interviews for our rising 2Ls.
