I posted this question in another forum but not sure it was the right location.Anyways, after living overseas for a while I am absolutely in love with Asia. I spoke with several Managing Partners at some of the biggest international law firms in Bangkok and they all informed me to attend a US law school. Bangkok is booming (quiet, no jokes!) as many banks and corporations are setting up shop there with a steady 6-8% annual growth rate.I would like to end up working in Bangkok (or even Hong Kong perhaps) for one of the major BigLaw firms out there. Any thoughts from the LSD crowd?
But the school has the word "International" in its name...hahaha, just kidding. What about some of the other schools I've been accepted/applied to? Any thoughts? Thanks.
themanwithnoname,Very good points. Just look at the attorney bios and you'll see many of them did not go to a Top 20 school. But a powerhouse name (i.e. any of the Ivy's) will carry alot of weight no matter where you go. I know Wisconsin and some of the UC state schools are huge in Bangkok and Hong Kong.Thanks for the info., kick-ass post!
You DEFINITELY do not need top 10% from UCLA to get biglaw.
