There are many ways to prepare for your in-office interview. In addition to our website, which contains information about our offices and practice groups as well as our culture and associate programs, there are multiple resources online including Chambers Associate, Vault and the American Lawyer Summer Associate Survey that you can review to learn about the firm. You can also peruse our NALP form. In addition, many schools’ career services offices keep surveys from past summer associates available. Alumni at the firm and current and former summer associates are also valuable sources of information.
Please bring a copy of your resume and transcript (unofficial transcripts are acceptable).
Each office operates differently, but traditionally at Proskauer a callback lasts between 2-3 hours. Our recruiters try their best to set up your interview with a range of associates and partners based on your individual preferences. At least one of the attorneys on your schedule will likely be a member of the Hiring Committee, and you may have a recruiting staff member on your schedule as well.
Each office has its own Hiring Committee that meets at different times. However, all offices try their best to get back to you as soon as possible. We understand that this is a stressful time and students should feel free to reach out to members of the Recruiting Department for an update on their status.
All recruiters and the interviewers you met during the recruiting process would be happy to answer any questions you have. We are also happy to set you up for a second look visit. The second look process is tailored to each candidate to allow you to speak with more lawyers in the practice area of your choosing.
