Options after law school
« on: September 26, 2007, 08:48:04 PM »
Assuming I graduate from either Columbia or NYU, and I am at or near the top of my class, what type of options will I have in terms of employment.  Aside from becoming a prosecutor, public defender, or working for a big law firm, where could I seek employment?  I would like to work in the private sector but I know I do not want to become a billable hour machine.  Is it possible to go to work for a company or organization (I guess as an "in-house" attorney) right out of law school?

Almost anywhere you want.

Yes.
