Tonkon Torp litigation attorney Lauren Bernton participated in a panel of University of Oregon Law School alumni, offering on-campus interview tips for UO law students preparing to enter the workforce. The panel aimed to provide students with practical advice on navigating the application and interview process with law firms and employers.
Bernton and her co-panelists offered tips on the application process, discussing how students can make their applications stand out, what makes a good cover letter, and what mistakes to avoid. The panel also dug in deep on the interview process, giving students best practices for interview prep, how to manage screening and callback interviews, and how best to follow up after an interview. The panel presentation ended with an informative Q&A with the students.
