Are expenses covered for most out of town call backs?
« on: October 07, 2008, 05:34:04 PM »
Are expenses covered for most out of town call backs? I have been reading about people getting their hotels, airfare, meals, taxi's covered by the interviewing firm etc, I have read on some firms websites their policy on this subject and I assume it would be widespread in Biglaw situations. What have your experiences been?

yes, naalp firms typically reimburse for all reasonable expenses for callbacks and after office visits (food, travel, lodging).  Many firms have direct billing for the airfare and the hotel and a travel agent to make the arrangements.

Most of the firms I did callbacks with paid upfront for plane tickets, but anything else was reimbursed.
