Each interview is twenty to thirty minutes long.
How many interviews will I receive?
This depends greatly on your background and the specific needs of the participating firms and corporations. It also depends upon the number of employers to whom you submit your resume. There are students who are not selected at all and others who have an abundance of interviews. Please be aware that students who are selected for two or more interviews are required to attend all interviews.
All interviews, are subject to scheduling limitations.
Is there a maximum number of interviews per student?
Students are limited to a maximum of ten (10) interviews during TARE. Students should work with their individual school career offices to discuss selections.
How should I prepare and what should I bring to the interview?
It is essential that you prepare for the interview by researching the employers and their practice areas and developing 3-5 questions based on your research to ask in your interview(s). Also, take advantage of the mock interview and career counseling services offered by your law school to prepare for the event. Employers will specify which materials they require, including transcripts, writing samples, and letters of recommendation.
