Mock Interview Program

The Mock Interview Program, held each spring, matches attorneys with current 1Ls who are beginning to prepare for the upcoming summer recruiting season. Attorneys conduct a brief mock interview and then provide constructive feedback and advice on the student’s interviewing style. The 2023 Mock Interview Program will take place virtually through Flo Recruit on Friday, April 14, 2023.
