Practice Interview Programs

1L Practice Interviews: We invite employers to visit the law school each spring semester to conduct practice interviews for 1L students. Registration to participate opens in late fall and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Learn more about the 2019 program here. Registered employers may review the 2019 logistics memo for information on planning your visit.

Rising 2L Mock Interviews: Every summer we match rising 2L students with practicing attorneys who are willing to assist students in honing their interviewing skills. Mock 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 mock interviews for our rising 2Ls.
