Researching firms

Postby macattaq » Wed Jan 06, 2010 2:15 pm

Right so, I'm putting together applications for summer clerkship programs. I've got my personal statement more or less finished, copies of undergrad transcript prepped, and my resume is nearing completion.

What I need help with is researching firms. Should I be looking at my own interests and trying to match those up with practice areas at the firm? Right now, I'm looking at basic numbers: billable hours, number of attorneys, location of offices, and so on. This is to help me understand what the firm's focus is. But once I get beyond that, what else do I need to assess in order to indicate to the firms that I would be a good fit for them?
