Can anyone describe how K&E would stack up?

Sorry--I'm a 1L with no legal experience so I'm not sure whether I want to do corporate or litigation work.

I'm interested generally in the quality of both litigation and corporate work that you'd get at Kirkland & Ellis compared with that work in NYC. I've heard K&E has a great litigation practice, so I was wondering how its litigation practice would compare to NYC firms' litigation practices. I'm assuming its corporate practice doesn't compare favorably with NYC corporate practices, but I'm curious as to how much of an advantage the NYC firms have here.

I'd also be interested in hearing takes on firm culture--whether it's a more laid-back environment, how the hours compare, etc. Last, how difficult is getting a job there compared with getting a job at a v10 in NYC?

I know this is still vague but I guess that's where I am in terms of the research I've done so far.

thanks.

Why don't you just call somebody from that firm that graduated from your law school and ask?

Kirkland has a top IP litigation practice so if that's something you're interested in it would be worth a look.
