Chicago Dept of Law or Miami-Dade County Public Defender?

Postby canes » Thu Mar 22, 2012 7:24 pm

1L at UChicago here, I eventually want to be with a larger firm in Miami doing transactional work, but I'm not ruling out Chicago or NYC. Which of these jobs would look better/provide me more to talk about at OCI?... Assume I'd enjoy my time at each one equally.

Both are unpaid (although my school gives a stipend for work in the public sector). With the city I'd be working with their real estate division (see http://www.cityofchicago.org/content/ci ... trans.html) and in Miami I'd be doing typical PD stuff with their county court division.

Thanks guys

Is it safe to assume you are a Floridian? (And went to the U.) Do the Chicago gig. It's experience you can talk about, and the ties can bring you back.
