Please make a note on your calendar that on Thursday, April 20, at 3:45 in Room 3250, our alum John Kuehn will present a program giving our students advice and recommendations about interviewing with law firms. John graduated from University of Wisconsin Law School in 1988 and began his career in Kirkland and Ellis's Chicago office. He moved to the New York office in 1996. Until recently, John was the Hiring Partner for Kirkland's New York office and he is quoted in the article "Interviewing 101," which gives pointers to law school students going through their screening and callback interviews. John is a frequent participant in panel discussions and workshops sponsored by Career Services offices of law schools in New York and the Northeast on topics such as "interviewing do's and don'ts," the pros and cons of "branch" offices of large firms, and the day-to-day life of a transactional lawyer. All 1Ls and 2Ls who plan to interview with mid-size or large law firms this summer and this fall are urged to take this opportunity to get advice from an expert on the interviewing process.
