Certainly they aren't expecting candidates to somehow remember everything from Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure.  I don't know what they are looking for, though....yeah, like you said, probably just how you reason through the problem...it would probably be better to say something like "well...I know this issue is raised...and this issue...I don't remember the exact rule but I certainly would be able to look it up fairly quickly here" or something like that rather than to take a guess as to what the law is and get it wrong.

I've only gone through a couple of these, but the interviews I did seemed to be looking largely for legal reasoning, and to an only slightly lesser extent, moral judgment.  Your mileage may vary though.
