Best Strategy for DC Lateralling

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Oct 17, 2011 11:46 pm

So I've got an offer for a summer associate at a big Midwest firm, but NOT in Chicago. My question is, what are my chances of being able to lateral to DC from this type of firm? What things can I do to get myself to DC? I tried for DC this OCI season and ultimately struck out, and now am trying to figure out what I can do to get myself to DC (basically in any legal capacity).

Does the Midwest firm have a non-regulatory office in DC? Does the type of the Midwest firm's work seem similar to the type of work done at big DC firms? More details would be helpful.
