To sign up, bring your resume to the 2nd floor Career Development Office and reserve your spot with one of several practicing attorneys that represent a range of fields and positions within the Atlanta legal community.  Interviews will last 30 minutes, allowing for a practice interview and a helpful critique.  Since this is an authentic simulation, you should bring a copy of your resume and list of references to the interview.
