Employment Litigation

Postby TLSNYC » Thu Aug 09, 2012 10:00 am

For OCI, I've targeted a lot of firms with strong L&E groups, because I'm pretty interested in employment litigation, but I'm wondering what kinds of exit options exist for someone who practices solely in employment litigation. Is USAO Civil an option? I imagine USAO criminal is tougher? I know one of the advantages of employment litigation is that smaller cases lead to more substantive responsibilities for younger associates. But can that substantive responsibility help with securing a government gig?

USAO Civil, DOL, NLRB, state AG civil. I've known/heard of lawyers from management-side firms who went on to all of these.
