Do first year associates in litigation primarily do document review?
What about first year associates in transactional groups - due diligence?
Know anything about first years working in bankruptcy or tax?
Right, now it's pretty hard. A lot people are trying to get into gov't work, and if you're not willing to move to DC you're looking at AUSA positions or states attorneys positions primarily.
There's some doc review, but more of that has been moving out to contract attorneys.
No idea about transactional groups, never touched it, never want to.
No idea on bankruptcy or tax.
