Law Students Prove They Can Argue
According to US News & World Report, it seems a new trend is starting among law firms. Frustrated by superficial interviews, law firms are trying out new interviewing techniques that can more easily help interviewers tell a good candidate from a great one. One example of this is the firm Pepper-Hamilton in Philadelphia, where they crafted a three part interview process that requires the candidate to discuss and argue the facts of their writing sample with one of the firms attorneys. By putting the candidates into a realistic scenario, they can more easily tell which candidates have the skills and personality required for their firm.
