Summary: Know what questions will be thrown your way during interviews when you are fresh out of law school and later in your career so that you don’t look unprepared.
Make sure you are prepared for your law firm interviews after law school.
During an interview right out of law school there are a number of things that you need to be ready to address. No will have a perfect application, so you need to know your weaknesses and strengths that overpower those weaknesses.

Take a look at your resume. Are there gaps between your schooling and work? Did you suddenly change careers or receive poor grades? You can bet that interviewers will notice these weak spots immediately and question you about them during the interview. Do not be apologetic, defensive, or insecure. Instead, you should be open to discussing the weaknesses briefly. Life happens, so explain why something happened and then move on. For example, you may have had the flu the day of the final exam, so your overall grade suffered as a result of the poor grade you received on it. Even after you have been out of law school for several years, make sure your resume is still up to date and that you are prepared to address any weaknesses law firms may ask you about.
