I expect to get a job at a big law firm when I graduate. General concensus is that they have the best training programs, and that if you want to lateral elsewhere, you have a much easier time. I don't know what will happen after that. We'll have a kid entering kindergarden right after I graduate, so that will start to be a concern.
I hope to work at a big law firm for at least 3 years, or until I have debt paid off and some money in the bank, whichever is later. By that time, I should know if I am doing well enough to be considered a partner-track associate. After that, maybe I'll try a small-mid firm; maybe I'll try for a Judicial Clerkship at that point; or maybe I'll hunt one of y'all down and start renting some office space.
