Yes. They also run CLEs focused on this area. I didn't think I wanted anything more to do with fashion, but after talking to the people at the firm, I'm going to bid on them and see what happens.
I have now achieved a double anonymity fail-- Renzo would be so proud.
So then you're definitely OperaSoprano...
As someone who is also kind of interested in public interest, I'm wondering what made you decide on the private firm route after previously being so committed to doing public interest and paying it off through IBR/LRAP? I don't really expect you to answer or anything but I'm curious.
Either way, best of luck to you at your eventual firm bid.
I'm definitely not 100% committed to anything. I was quite certain I would hate firm culture, so I was surprised by how friendly and helpful the associates were. They really made me want to come work for them, which was probably the point.
I am very torn right now, because working for an organization I care about means a great deal to me. My biglaw eligibility, such as it is, will depend on good things happening this semester. I don't know that any firm would ever be interested in me, no matter how I do, and I love my current nonprofit internship, so I honestly have to tell you that I don't have all the answers yet.
Vanwinkle usually has better answers than I do; you should ask him.
