What makes a great interview? As a legal recruiter in the Washington metro area, I speak nearly every day with experienced attorneys seeking to make lateral moves between firms or to leave firm practice altogether to work directly for a company as in-house counsel. I also speak routinely with hiring lawyers in law firms and companies about their hiring needs, generally, and about individual attorneys.

Out of these conversations, I have developed a better understanding of the type of information interviewers really want to know when they ask fairly common questions. This information is useful to any lawyer about to embark upon an interview.
