The Mock Interview Program is a great opportunity for students to practice their interviewing skills before fall recruiting. Students select the city in which they would like to do the interview (most often, the city where they're working over the summer) and OCS will canvas employers to match you with attorneys who conduct the interviews in their office at a mutually agreeable time. It’s also a great way to expand your network and give yourself an opportunity to be recruited at the host firm; each year employers tell us that they have brought back mock interview candidates for callbacks and even summer employment.

New Clerkship Application Process
This summer, while most of you are away from campus (or not in DC at all), we will be piloting a new procedure for letters of recommendation. Instead of dropping off application packets in OCS for us to include your letters of recommendation, we will instead be mailing your letters of recommendation separately. This will allow your applications to get to chambers sooner, and save you the added trouble of getting applications to campus when you're not here.
When sending in your paper or email applications, please be sure to indicate in your cover letters that your letters of recommendation will arrive separately, and list your recommenders. Then register in Symplicity, and email us at email@example.com to let us know you have done so. With your email, please include a spreadsheet listing the judge's name, the court, which letters of recommendation to send, the delivery method (mail or email), and the email address, if sending via email.

What makes a city livable? How do we improve our use of transportation, infrastructure, and energy? How do we interact with our communities and governments? How does technology factor into the equation? Our increasingly connected world of devices with intelligent connections that seamlessly integrate the physical and information worlds—the Internet of Things—presents immense opportunity to transform the ability of cities to offer new services to their residents, optimize the efficiency of existing services, and improve the overall sustainability and resiliency of their communities.
Please join Microsoft for a morning panel discussion on Wednesday, May 20 that will bring together experts who address these questions each day. The event will engage speakers and the audience in an exploration of how governments and localities are using innovations in technology and new types of public-private partnerships to operationalize smart cities. It will touch on where we want to go and how we get there, recognizing some of the challenges along the way. Students are welcome to attend!
Wednesday, May 20, 2015 • 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. • Light refreshments provided
Event Location: Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center
901 K Street, NW, 11th Floor, Washington, DC 20001
