Volunteer for Mock Interview Match

Mock Interview Match provides students an opportunity to practice their interviewing skills before a “real” attorney in a law firm over the summer. Our goal is to match every 1L or 2E student who desires to participate in Mock Interview Match with an attorney who will provide at least one interview session with the student this summer – at the attorney’s office and on a day and at a time that is mutually agreeable.

How the Program Works:

  • By the end of May, we match you with a student and provide an email introduction. From this point on, it will be the responsibility of the student to make arrangements with you for your mock interview.
  • Students will reach out to you after July 17 with an updated resume to request a mock interview. Typically, students and attorneys arrange interviews between mid-July and the end of August.
  • Interviews will be held in your office on a day and time that is mutually agreeable.
  • By connecting our students with practicing attorneys in the DFW legal community not only do we hope to improve their interviewing skills, but provide them with a relationship and new contact as they enter the Dallas legal market.
