First-Year Mock Interview Porgram

The Young Lawyer's Section of the LBA is helping to host a mock interview program for 1Ls. This is a great opportunity for you to practice your interviewing skills with attorneys from the community before the official interviews begin for summer jobs. The program is being held on Saturday, January 22 from 9:00am - 1:00pm at the offices of Frost Brown Todd (400 West Market Street).  Please see the attached flyer.  The interview will take about 30 minutes and you will only need to be there for your scheduled interview time. Breakfast will be provided by Dinsmore & Shohl's Diversity Committee. In order to participate, you must send your resume to Kristie Wetterer at kristie.wetterer@gmail.com by NOON on Tuesday, January 18. Any resumes received after noon will not be allowed to participate. Kristie will post the interview schedule on the Docket on Thursday, January 20 and will also bring a schedule to the 1L classes. The SBA will be selling UofL padfolios on Tuesday (which are great to take with you to the interview with extra copies of your resume included). If you participate, do not forget to write thank you notes to the attorneys that interview you. Email kristie.wetterer@gmail.com with any questions.
