General Board / law firm interview in early august ...
« on: June 10, 2009, 09:19:39 PM »
I got an invitation to an interview at a job fair. biglaw firm.

I wonder if they are still conducting interviews to cover up the fact that they are not doing well. I am sure this firm laid off quite some people back last spring......

the girl I talked about who is interning with the 2d circuit ... she's workign with an active status judge (the one who worked with a "senior" judge is my friend, this woman is my friend's friend)

but I suppose these judges got at least a handful of applications and the applicants could not be worse than those of federal district judges. They can only be better.

A friend told me that her classmate got a coa internship (2d circuit). apparently she's from a T20, and does not have very good first-semester grades. they knew her grades and still took her (she's very conscientious student, though)

do you think it reflects well on you if you intern for coa judge, even if 1L summer does not matter that much?
is it really harder to get a coa internship? (i've heard very few people getting a coa internship, except maybe 1 of my peers who will intern for a 'senior status judge')

Well. Appellate courts are high prestige, district courts not so much. The experience you'd get is probably about the same, just about resume fillers.

you mean court of appeals for xx circuit is very prestigious? more prestigious than district courts? I thought they are the same.

at my school about 15% people last year did judicial internships.
and the school asked people not to turn down judges' offers too.
would it be reasonable to assume that not that many people got offers from judges?

I know getting paid job is hard (harder), but did not quite expect so many people finding difficulty in getting volunteer/ unpaid positions.

I heard judicial internship and some law firm experience will be beneficial ... ok if you are fresh grad.

and I heard taht among all kinds of law, litigation is the most valued.

I think those who got firm jobs definitely have an edge ... when it comes to OCI. if they have decent gpa.
