Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're joined by ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones to talk about some less common documents that employers might request from you when you apply for a legal job. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Types of less common documents that might be requested during the application process
  • Why do employers ask for this extra step for certain positions?
  • How to craft your application documents to present yourself in the best way, and what common mistakes to avoid 
  • Should you expect to be asked for references?
