Sign-up for a mock interview today!

All students are encouraged to participate in the Mock Interview Program coordinated by the Career Services Office.  The program will take place from January 27 – February 12, 2014. In this program, local attorneys volunteer to conduct mock interviews with students either at their law firms or at the Law School.  Each mock interview is scheduled for approximately 30 minutes: 15-20 minutes for the mock interview and 10-15 minutes for feedback on the student’s resume and interview techniques.

Mock interview times that are available as of January 31 are listed here.  Mock interview appointments will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis by sending an email to   Confirmation notices will be sent to students as interview times are confirmed.  You may sign up for as many interviews as your schedule permits.

As additional attorneys sign up for the program, updates will be made to the schedule.

The interviewer(s) will be provided a copy of your resume prior to your mock interview, so please be sure to update your resume in preparation for this program.  Information about legal resumes, including sample resumes, can be found in the CSO Handbook (available on this site under the “Career Resources” tab).  Please forward your questions about the program or your resume to Maria Comas at

Public Interest Summer Job Search Webinars

NALP and Equal Justice Works are co-sponsoring a two-part webinar series for law students and CSO professionals that will provide insight on the key elements of the summer public interest job application process. Attorneys with years of application review experience highlight what you should and shouldn’t do; explain how and why public interest application materials may substantively differ from law firm materials; and explore the dynamics of personal interactions in interviews and networking situations.

Duquesne Law students do not have to pay to watch these webinars, but registration is required.  Students are not required to attend both sessions.
