A friend of mine goes to a mid-range T3 school but due a close family connection have been afforded an opportunity to work at a V10 firm during the summer,He is a little bit torn about this because in reality he would never qualify for such a position in any other circumstance.
Do you think taking it could hurt him in the future because mid to small firms could be scared off by seeing such a firm on the resume especially if he were not asked back by the such V10 firm, wondering what happened, I assume in most circumstances 2L summer students at V10 firms at least get an offer to stay on after school, I mean money is not an issue with firms at this level.
One question do biglaw firms have students beyond their student program?
Any insight into this situation would be great.
