working for a judge in my home market (not where I want to be after graduation) or working for a small firm practicing a type of law that i don't think i'm particularly interested in in a primary market that I may want to be in after graduation? a penny for your thoughts!
Is the small firm shitlaw? If not I guess I'd do that, especially if there's any chance of working with them after graduation if OCI doesn't work out. As far as OCI they'll probably be roughly equal.
define shitlaw? it's also in nyc, where i might want to work (but am not totally sure--so hopefully this summer would help me figure that out0
Insurance Defense, Personal Injury, DUI Defense, Traffic tickets, Family law, Possibly any small firm involving 'creditors rights' or foreclosures.
I mean if you go to a low ranked school then you prob want to get your foot in the door anywhere, so I'd still do it even if shitlaw. If you can do better and really don't want to work there later then I'd just do the judge.
Although if the firm pays then just take that, no question.
