Pro Bonoing with Law Students

One of my close friends was just asked to assist in mock interviews for those still in law school. We all know that law students are cute, cuddly and fun to poke with a stick, so my friend quickly agreed to this public service. As she has as much experience as the rest of us in interviewing people (read: next to zero) an e-mail chain popped up amongst us recent law grads discussing things that these law students should be asked.

In other words, we had way too much fun proposing the way we would torture these poor souls instead of focusing on keeping our jobs as lawyers. Here's what we came up with:
  • What’s the average flight speed of an unladen swallow?
  • What would make you say "That’s beneath me!" when it comes to job tasks and requirements?
  • Are you interested in having a future in plastics?
  • Have you ever been in Turkish prison?
  • Would you flip fries with the right, left or both hands?
  • Can you believe it’s not butter?
  • How far are you willing to go to get a job?
  • Do you like movies about Gladiators?
  • When it comes to ethical/unethical, how many lies will you tell to cover your boss's ass?
  • Do you have a gag reflex?
  • Have you ever seen a grown man naked?
Clearly one should refrain from asking “Why the F*** did you go to law school in the first place?” as it seems a little fierce in a mock interview.
