In the past, I've carried a black nylon padfolio-type thing into an interview with extra copies of my resume and some notebook paper for taking notes or drawing up any diagrams if the interview called for it. But my background is in business and my jobs tended to be on the business-technical side. Now I'll be interviewing with lawyers for summer positions (and to anyone else doing OCI/Fall Recruiting now, good luck!)

So what cuts it in terms of professionalism in front of lawyers? I was thinking about buying one of these (in Black, the default link might show Brown):

What do you think, good enough?

Looks like a football. I'd prefer smooth leather, but I don't think that'll prevent you from getting the job. ;)
