I bid very high on Jones Day and Kirkland & Ellis for the so-called diversity fair in SF. I'll have to check out MoFo. I don't remember seeing it on the list for the career fair. I bid on most of the others on OP's list, except for Gibson Dunn.
I am interested in bankruptcy and, possibly, M&A or something else, but bankruptcy was my 1L summer job. I like it, and it's the only area of law with which I'm even vaguely familiar.
How about boutiques in bankruptcy? Or tax? I do not have an accounting background.
Have you looked into Shartsis Friese? One-office firm with strong transactional practice. Pays market (i.e. $160K). Very reputable in SF.
Looks really good. Do you think I could get them to interview me in late July when I'm in the area for the SF diversity fair? How should I go about doing this?
Are you talking about BADCF? If so, then yes. I interviewed with Shartsis last year and I got that interview and callback via BADCF. I ended up going to another firm because I wanted to do litigation, but had a great impression of Shartsis.
