The LCS Annual Mock Interview Program is an excellent way to develop your interview skills in a simulated pre-screen OCI environment. Attorney volunteers will act as an OCI interviewer, then provide feedback on your performance. Mock interviews help identify interviewing strengths and weaknesses, build your confidence and help you prepare for a potential OCI interview. Even if you do not plan to participate in OCI’s, mock interviews are a great way to meet attorneys, network and enhance your interviewing skills all at once! An email will be sent out mid-July with instructions on how to sign up for mock interview slots.
