At my law school we get to choose an elective to take during our 2nd semester... the deadline for a decision is fast approaching and I'm trying to figure out if I should start down the track towards a concentration in litigation or international law. Obviously this depends on my goals for the future, which are: to obtain employment in the litigation department of a firm (maybe eventually with a corporation). I also have an interest in international law... my undergrad major was Int'l Affairs and I've spent some time abroad. If I got into international law, I'd like to be on the litigation side of it.
I guess my questions are:
-do firms really care about concentrations?
-if they do care, would they rather see someone interested in litigation or international law?
