I don't feel that its necessarily a "requirement" so to speak.
As a matter of fact, some of the firms that I looked at, I'd venture to say roughly half of them, had managing partners who had no business background, this even includes an economics degree.
I was curious to find out other people's opinions on the topic though.
I took your advice and checked out some profiles of lawyers at well-respected firms in my area.
I came to find that approximately half of them had business degrees and that of this group roughly 70% had undergraduate business degrees.
If you attend a school in california (for instance USC, UCLA, etc) or on the east coast (cornell, etc) and you want to get a job in chicago, does the fact that you studied at a school in a different area discourage potential employers? Does it make it more difficult to get interviews? Does this limit you to some degree to the general area in which you attended law school?
Thanks for your replies.
