Simple. To do the best job that you can possibly do. This requires a good working knowledge of the general field itself as well as a focused direction on the goals of the office. If you work in civil matters, you will need to have a working knowledge of the law office and how to find information to help the attorney's put together cases. You may also have to know the court's schedule and who is sitting on the bench. You need to know how to contact other lawyers, as well as the law archives to get archival documents. You may need to know how to reach other judges law clerk to re-schedule to add information to to a case or for the judge to read a motion. So, your approach to work is to learn as much as possible about the internal working and goals of your office, so you know how to use outside resources to get the information that is needed to run the office and be the best associate to the attorneys. You can also add that you work very hard and are eager to learn and be an asset to the office and the other employees. You may even have goal to take some law courses and become a para-legal or an attorney yourself. Be certain to add this when you talk about your approach to work. Mostly they want to see that you are a leader as well as a team player. And that you have goals that will benefit the office and you boss. That is very important to add. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
