What is the best way to prepare for a journalism job interview at a legal publication?

I am doing research for a blog post I'm writing and want to know what the best way to prepare for a journalism job interview at a legal publication is.  

Thanks in advance for the help!

I don't know much about journalism or about legal publications, but I would imagine that interview preparation is going to be the same as for any other profession.
You need to convince the interviewer that you have an interest in the field, the knowledge and skills to do the job and ideally be able to demonstrate some previous experience in a similar role, or at least one that involves some of the required skills.
So for the journalism side I would expect you to be able to produce some articles that you had written and be able to talk about the research you did for each piece, and for the legal side of the interview perhaps some formal legal certification and able to show a continued interest if the qualification is not very recent.
If you have got as far as being invited to an interview then they must like your CV, so make sure you can demonstrate everything on it and talk easily about everything that you mentioned on it.

Good luck!
