LegalJob was asked the question below (personal facts deleted) and the answer reiterates and ties together the past couple of posts. Many seem to have similar questions so LegalJob posts below the response provided in the Monday Mailbag series.
LegalJob gave this advice last night as part of career panel speaking to GW law students. If working at a firm is something you are interested in, it will be helpful for you to demonstrate focus and commitment as early as possible.
LegalJob received a follow-up question on this topic in the Monday Mailbag series. That last post on interviewing was very helpful. Should I make a list of talking points and memorize them for my interview?
Recently, someone raised a question dealing with non-traditional paths to a big law firm on Abovethelaw. This question is related to LegalJob’s first post concerning a “hook” for getting into a big law firm.
