Cover Letter for 3L Big Law

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jul 30, 2012 9:19 pm

I don't know if I should specify a practice area. I have experience with both corporate and litigation. And I would be open to doing either at a big firm.

Currently at a mid-sized firm this summer. Got an offer for fall to stay on. Potential offer in future. But want Big law. I know the odds are low, but I am actually very qualified (4.0 2L year).

I am most interested in securities. But either on transactional or litigation side. I don't want to close any doors. But I also don't want to seem like I am not specifying a practice area since 3L hiring is usually practice group specific.

Say exactly that. You are interested in securities and would be happy to do either litigation or transactional.

Say whatever you want and then change your mind, if you can make up your mind. It happens.
