As the law school application period ramps up, applicants may wonder which law schools conduct interviews. Well, most schools do not offer interviews as a portion of the application process. However, some schools, such as Northwestern, offer and encourage interviews, while others offer interviews on an invitation only basis. We’ve created a handy tool for you–a spreadsheet outlining which schools provide interviews, and in what format.
Generally, if a school offers an interview program as a part of the application process, participation is strongly encouraged. For similar experiences at schools that do not offer an interview program, applicants may be interested in a campus visit. Campus visits will not be considered in the application process but still provide valuable insight into the schools. Speaking with students, sitting in on a class and meeting some of the faculty will aid applicants as they narrow their choices.
To prepare for an interview: research the school, be able to answer any questions about yourself, and practice interviewing. If any applicants are interested in practicing interviewing, please contact Career Services to conduct a mock interview. The experience presents a wonderful opportunity to eliminate nervousness and receive valuable feedback.
