Review for Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy LLP:
Positive. Softball questions. 2-3 years experience preferred since they are lean on attorney and do not want to train one. ... Informal and lean on staff and attorneys, so its usually fast-paced but easily subject to economic health of its clients. ... Meaningful to some extent with direct client contact. But you have multiple representation in employment immigration, which can be tricky between the employee-client and employer-client. There is too m

Review for Covington & Burling LLP:
Normal interviews. They do check references (as everyone knows). ... General reputation as a less social, more quiet, polite place seems about right to me, reading between the lines. It's of course very hard to tell during the summer, and there were plenty of fun associ ... Very structured. You'll get the work you want, if you just ask. Plenty of time to finish everything.

Review for Fenwick & West LLP:
Interviews are fairly straightforward. Once you've made it to the on-site interview stage, interviewers are mostly just trying to suss out your personality to make sure you're sharp and interesting and ... In general, the people at Fenwick are collegial and fun, but also very hardworking (in the past few years the firm has been extremely busy). There are happy hours and lunch events, and sometimes for a ... I found almost all of my work at Fenwick to be very meaningful and helpful to developing my practice.

Review for Sheppard Mullin:
I interviewed for a summer 2014 position at the Del Mar, CA, office at the Patent Law Interview Program at Loyola in August of 2013. Both the screening and call back interviews were very relaxed and l ... The culture of the firm for the office I was at (Del Mar) was definitely relaxed yet productive. Everyone has something to do/work on, and serious work happens every day, but the firm attempts, and su ... The work felt meaningful.

Review for Kirkland & Ellis LLP:
OCI was very straightforward. I had the grades, so the interviewer basically said I was a shoo-in for a callback, and that I could email him if I had any questions once I got my list of interviewers fo ... Very "work-hard/play-hard." Everyone is 100% on top of their shit. For every research assignment, you need to have every case be in the jurisdiction in which they are litigating, otherwise it doesn't ... Most of the assignments I took were essentially research assignments. To be sure, Partners went out of their way to give me briefs to make sure I got feedback on my writing. And associates gave me re

Review for Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP:
Interviews for Summer Associate were similar to other Biglaw firms. However, the firm did seem to care about "Why Fried Frank", "Why X Practice Group", and "Why New York." ... Awesome culture. The people are awesome, from the senior partners down through the associates and staffers. Best work environment I have ever been in. ... A mixture of meaningful, hard work and the type of work that requires note taking and sitting in on conference calls. Obviously this varies by department. Overall, the way they have it is a great mix f

Review for O'Melveny & Myers LLP:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, I missed the first few days of OCI. Many firms did not allow me to reschedule, but OMM not only was the fastest to respond, but went also out of their way to help. They ... ...

Review for Winston & Strawn LLP:
Relaxed screener, talked more about non-law things and briefly touched on the firm. Seemed more about getting a sense of fit. Callback was similar ... The firm is more formal than others in the market in terms of dress. But the staff and attorneys are very friendly. ... SA work is pretty easy. They don't expect you to do a ton of assignments. Work increases a lot as an associate, but they are honest about it. They have great clients for litigation and go to trial more
