I don’t remember much about the first case I read in law school, but I do remember how intimidating it was. I arrogantly thought I would quickly read those how-ever-many pages, absorb the content on the first read, IRAC the case in five minutes, and enjoy the rest of my life. Instead I remember spending an eternity reading each page and infinite more time re-reading the most boring content I’d ever been exposed to. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, I ventured into the hellish comprehension task of briefing. Then I realized that there was no “rest of my life” to enjoy for at least three years.
Like that first case, job interviews can be intimidating, time consuming, anxiety-ridden and frustrating. But they don’t have to be and the IRAC strategy that served us so well in our legal analysis can help.
