The most nerve-wracking portion of the interview is, of course, answering the many questions that may be posed to you. You may be asked a variety of questions, depending on the skill level of the person interviewing you. Some interviewers are not trained in the art of obtaining as much useful information as possible from a prospective employee. These people may spend much of the interview time talking about themselves and their practice, or pontificating on the firm and its philosophy. You may come away from one of these interviews knowing more about the firm than they learned about you!
